Maryland redshirt senior QB C.J. Brown left Saturday's game versus Iowa in the third quarter with a back injury, but returned to finish the game.

As Brown was falling to the ground on a tackle, an Iowa defender dove in and landed on his back. Brown lay facedown for several minutes before he was evaluated on the sideline and eventually ushered to the locker room. He returned with about 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter. "It definitely scared me because the whole right side of my back tightened up, locked up," said Brown, who suffered an upper-trapezius injury in his back. "I've got to look at the film. I thought it was a late hit. He got me on top of the head, so my neck and my shoulders are a little bit tight. … But I felt like I could go, and I was able to go back out there and finish." The Terps will monitor Brown's status closely throughout the week. If Brown has to miss any time, No. 3 quarterback Perry Hills will play, as backup Caleb Rowe (ACL) is out for the year.

Maryland redshirt junior QB Caleb Rowe will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The team announced the news on Saturday after Rowe hurt his left knee during a non-contact drill in Tuesday’s practice. As long as he's healthy, C.J. Brown will be the undisputed starter for the rest of the season. Rowe, meanwhile, should be the starter next season, after Brown graduates -- assuming he's recovered in time.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in the school's 38-31 win over Iowa.

Diggs took a screen pass 53 yards for a touchdown, showcasing vision and straight-line speed. This might not be a common opinion, but Diggs is a linear athlete and his role might be impacted because of it. There has been no indication if he will declare for the draft or not.
Oct 18 - 4:50 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in a 52-24 loss to Ohio State on Saturday.

Caleb Rowe's four-yard scoring pass to Diggs pulled the Terps to within three touchdowns early in the fourth quarter. Needing a perfect 13 minutes of football to give themselves any sort of a chance, Rowe threw a pick-six five minutes later to eliminate any chance of victory. With his seven catches today, Diggs is left with 36 catches, two more than he had last year in an injury-shortened campaign. He's also got 450 yards and three touchdowns.
Oct 4 - 5:19 PM

Maryland HC Randy Edsall will not update redshirt senior QB C.J. Brown's status until Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Brown suffered a sprained left wrist last Saturday against Indiana and missed the second half. "We’ll see if he can practice," Edsall said. "But we won’t have anything [on his status] until game-time." This is just another example of why injury reports should be enforced for college programs. Caleb Rowe would start in Brown's place.
Sep 29 - 10:42 AM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 37-15 win over Indiana on Saturday.

C.J. Brown's 29-yard scoring pass to Diggs put the Terps ahead 17-6 midway through the second frame. Diggs, one of the Big 10's most dangerous outside playmakers, has 29 catches for 398 yards and a pair of scores. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler compares Diggs to Ted Ginn Jr.
Sep 27 - 6:18 PM

Maryland junior DE Quinton Jefferson will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

Jefferson recorded 7.5 tackles for loss, including three sacks and had already tallied one sacks this year. Senior Keith Bowers is expected to start in his place. Maryland faces Indiana on Saturday.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 56 yards in the school's 34-20 win over Syracuse.

Diggs added 12 yards on one carry too. Watching Diggs, he is far more straight-line and less laterally explosive than people initially noted. Perhaps the injury only added to that, but Diggs plays an on the ground game as is in the mold of a "smaller" receiver.
Sep 20 - 5:28 PM

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in the school's 40-37 loss to West Virginia.

Most of Diggs' production occurred on a single play of 77 yards. In fact, some will think Diggs looks less explosive than he did prior to last year's injury. Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks Diggs is a straight-line player.
Sep 13 - 3:57 PM

Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs had seven receptions for 50 yards in a 24-17 win versus South Florida on Saturday.

The Terps entered the fourth quarter with a deficit but outscored the Bulls 10-0 in the frame to pull out the victory. Diggs, you'll recall, is returning from a fractured fibula. Prior to that injury, which occurred last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games. Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote over the summer that Diggs reminded him of Ted Ginn Jr.
Sep 6 - 8:59 PM

The Baltimore Sun reports that Maryland HC Randy Edsall has noted that freshman QB Will Ulmer has been moved to wide receiver.

"It’s ironic that he was about to come see me to talk about exactly what I wanted to talk to him about," Edsall told the Baltimore Sun. "He’s all for it and believes that wide receiver will be his best position going forward." The 6-foot, 190-pound Ulmer,and former four-star recruit, has been quite impressive on scout team making plays against Maryland's first- and second-team defense. The Terrapins WR unit has took quite the hit in the last couple of months, with WR Taivon Jacobs tearing his ACL and brother Levern suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating the school’s code of student conduct. In the beginning of summer, Nigel King, the Terps’ third-leading receiver last season, left the team and transferred to Kansas in August.
Sep 3 - 12:05 PM

Maryland redshirt freshmen WR Taivon Jacobs suffered a season-ending knee injury on the second drive of the Terps’ win against James Madison on Saturday.

Jacobs, one of three starting Terp receivers, took a redshirt as a true freshman after suffering a torn ACL during his senior year in high school. The Terps' receivers are beginning to look a little like Iowa's snake bitten AIRBHG running back unit. You might recall that Maryland’s top receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, both suffered season-ending injuries in the same mid-October game last year. Third WR Nigel King transferred to Kansas last month.

Maryland redshirt senior ILB L.A. Goree "is not a great athlete," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Goree rounds out the trio of no name prospects with next level potential," Pauline wrote, referring to Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and Matthew Robinson. "Goree is not a great athlete but a tough, instinctive defender constantly making plays on the ball." Pauline slaps Goree with a Round 7-UDFA grade.
Aug 19 - 2:15 AM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "scouts like" Maryland redshirt senior OLB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil.

"Scouts like Cudjoe-Virgil, who was rotated into the line-up last season," the expert wrote. "He’s a better athlete compared to Goree with great measurables but needs work to complete his game." Pauline sees in Cudjoe-Virgil a seventh-round prospect. Cudjoe-Virgil missed significant time due to injury last year, so proving his health will be of the utmost importance in the fall.
Aug 19 - 1:36 AM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wants to see more consistency from Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs before he'll bump up his Round 6 grade.

"Diggs is another wide out to watch," Pauline wrote. "He has the ability to stretch the field and make big plays from the line of scrimmage. One could argue he should be rated higher than our sixth round grade but I’ll wait for Diggs to up his game and show more consistency before doing so." Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." Prior to suffering a fractured fibula last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games.
