ESPN's Mel Kiper says Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs' "exceptional change-of-direction quickness reminds a little bit of Peter Warrick."

"There might not be a more elusive target in the college game than Diggs," writes Kiper. Diggs suffered a fractured fibula in October. Prior to the injury, he was one of the most explosive offensive weapons in the country, so we hope his joystick quicks weren't lost on the operating table. Diggs hinted at playing four years with the Terrapins last August. If he has a big season, it'll be interesting to see if Diggs' tune changes.

Maryland sophomore T Moise Larose has been suspended for the 2014 season for violating the athletics department’s student code of conduct.

Larose started a few games at left tackle in 2013 as a true freshman after the team's starter abruptly departed the team. The sophomore-to-be then suffered a foot injury against Syracuse, which ended his season. "According to the Maryland student-athlete handbook, a one-year suspension is dealt for a third positive drug test," the Washington Post writes.

Jets selected Maryland CB Dexter McDougle with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

McDougle (5-foot-9 3/4, 196) lasted only three games as a senior before a year-ending shoulder injury, which should be healed by camp. He finished college with 27 starts and six interceptions. McDougle ran 4.47 at the Terrapins' Pro Day, adding a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. A quick-twitch mover with a physical playing style but short arms (30 5/8") and sub-optimal height, McDougle's size limitations may force him to slot corner in the pros. He does offer upside to develop into a quality nickel back. McDougle will likely be limited mostly to special teams as a rookie.

Maryland CB Dexter McDougle met with the Raiders this week.

McDougle (5-foot-10 1/4, 196 pounds) worked out for representatives from 24 NFL teams at Maryland's pro day on April 8. The corner ran forties in 4.53, 4.47 and 4.51 seconds. He added a short shuttle of 4.18 seconds and a three-cone drill of 6.84 seconds. As with the combine, a shoulder injury prevented McDougle from doing the bench, but that won't affect his stock any. NFL.com's Gil Brandt calls the Terrapin "a probable third-round draft choice."

Maryland sophomore OW Stefon Diggs will miss spring practice while recovering from a broken leg.

Diggs suffered a fractured fibula in October which required surgery. Prior to the injury, Diggs was one of the more dynamic offensive weapons in the country. Hopefully that explosiveness was not lost with the injury.

Maryland junior LB Cole Farrand (shoulder) won't play in Saturday's game against Boston College.

Farrand, the Terps's leader in tackles per game (8.3), won't be around to help slow down the nation's leading rusher Andre Williams. He suffered the injury in Saturday's victory over Virginia Tech. Farrand missed the Syracuse game earlier this month due to a head injury.

Maryland junior QB C.J. Brown took the blame for the Terrapins' current 1-4 skid.

The Terrapins were 4-0 and ranked No. 25 six weeks ago. Maryland is now 5-4 and it doesn't have a great chance of winning this weekend at Virginia Tech. "It's definitely on me," Brown said. "That reflects that (quarterback) position. I've got to be able to lead the team down the field and make plays." Maryland's top two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, are out for the season with broken legs. "To me," Maryland coach Randy Edsall said, "C.J. gives us the best opportunity to win."

Maryland junior LB Cole Farrand (head) won't play in Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Maryland's injury problems continue. This time, they lose their leading tackler coming off a bye week. Farrand has collected 67 tackles this season, good for fifth in the ACC. Shawn Petty, a former quarterback, will start in Farrand's place.

Maryland sophomore starting LT Mike Madaras has quit football.

"My heart is not in the game of football or going to college at this time," Madaras said in a statement released by the school. The sophomore, who NFL.com's Mike Huguenin believes "was one of the most talented young linemen in the ACC," started all eight games for the Terps this season. Madaras also started eight games as a true freshman in 2012 while appearing in all 12 contests. Junior Jake Wheeler is one candidate to replace Madaras.

Maryland junior QB C.J. Brown (concussion) will miss Saturday's game against No. 9 Clemson.

Brown suffered the head injury earlier this month against Florida State when he took a nasty hit from Seminoles defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. Caleb Rowe will start against the Tigers. Maryland listed an astounding 24 players on its Thursday injury report.

Maryland junior WR Deon Long suffered broken tibia and fibula during the game against Wake Forest.

Long and Stefon Diggs will have surgery soon and miss the remainder of the season. He had recorded 32 receptions for 289 yards and a touchdown before sustaining the injury.

Updating a previous item, Maryland sophomore OW Stefon Diggs suffered a fractured fibula during Saturday's game against Wake Forest and will undergo surgery.

Diggs caught eight passes for 67 yards before leaving the game. It is obviously a major injury, but Diggs should have plenty of time to recover before next season, the first year he will be draft-eligible.

Maryland sophomore OW Stefon Diggs was carted off the sideline against Wake forest with a right ankle injury.

A towel was over Diggs' head and he was in obvious pain. He was helped off the field by trainers and was unable to put any weight on the injury. Diggs took a crossing pattern for a first down and immediately grabbed his lower right leg. The sophomore is one of the most explosive players in college football.

Maryland junior QB C.J. Brown (concussion) was cleared to practice on Sunday.

Brown suffered a concussion earlier this month against Florida State. Although he passed every concussion test he took leading up to Saturday's game against Virginia, Maryland elected to play it safe and de-activate Brown (the Terps won anyway, 27-26). It seems probable at this point that Brown will play against Wake Forest on Saturday; backup Caleb Rowe will start again if Brown's situation unexpectedly deteriorates.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 07:58:00 PM

Maryland junior QB C.J. Brown is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Brown suffered a concussion on Saturday against Florida State after Seminoles defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel put his helmet through Brown's chest and the quarterback's head snapped back. Backup Caleb Rowe will make his second career start if Brown can't give it a go. Rowe isn't nearly as adept at running the zone-read option as Brown, but he possesses a strong arm and can effectively run the offense.
