Maryland linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield latest Terp to suffer Torn ACL

Another one bites the dust. - Rob Carr

Another week, another key Maryland player suffering a season-ending ACL injury.

It wouldn't be a Monday this season without learning about a key Maryland player suffering from a torn ACL, would it? It appears that Angry Maryland Quarterback-Hating God has now shifted over to the defensive side of the ball, taking aim at star linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield, the quarterback of the defense, ending his season with three games remaining.

Hartsfield went down during the Georgia Tech game on Saturday and had to be helped off the field. Head coach Randy Edsall said after the game that his knee was injured, but it appeared to be stable (i.e. hopefully not an ACL-type injury). Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

Just to recap, Maryland has now lost C.J. Brown (starting QB), Perry Hills (QB), Caleb Rowe (QB) and now Hartsfield to season-ending ACL injuries. We also lost Devin Burns to a broken foot. And four of those five injuries have come within the past two weeks.

Remember when Maryland was 2-0 in ACC play and very realistically looking at a bowl birth? Good times. We'll have more, including who will replace Hartsfield and the impact on the defense (hint: not good) soon.

One probably now has to ask the question about whether this is a conditioning issue, a field turf issue, or just really, really, really, really, really, really coincidentally bad luck.

Until then, think of ways to call off the AMQHG before he strikes again.
