Diggs, Long out for season

The Terrapins lose their top two offensive playmakers.


Terps embarrassed in Winston-Salem, 34-10

The Terrapins deliver yet another uninspiring performance in a crucial ACC road game.


Maryland WR Diggs carted off with leg injury

Maryland star wide receiver Stefon Diggs was carted off the field with a right leg injury during the fourth quarter of the Terps' game against Wake Forest Saturday afternoon.

Diggs and Long had formed a fearsome duo at receiver for the Terps, but both are now out with leg injuries. Long was injured earlier in the game.

Diggs received the injury on a slant pass over the middle, when his leg was rolled up on by a Wake Forest player (the same thing that happened to Long).

11 starters and three key backups are out for the Terrapins now, most due to injury. Long and Diggs are the two most high-profile, but running back Brandon Ross also received an injury in the game.

The sophomore had a team-high eight catches for 167 yards before the injury. Long was the team's leading receiver at the time of his injury.

The severely hampered Terrapins are currently being blown out by the Demon Deacons.


Terps getting manhandled 24-3 at half

Maryland's road woes continue, as the Terps are getting blown out in Winston-Salem. Wake Forest leads 24-3 as Maryland has been outplayed in every way possible.

The Terrapins' third quarter seemed to start out positively, as the Maryland offense drove down the field near the red zone before Deon Long got his leg rolled up on and was carted off the field. Brandon Ross took the next play into the red zone, but Maryland settled for Brad Craddock's 23-yard field goal to make it 10-3.

Maryland was able to force a punt on the ensuing Wake Forest drive, and Albert Reid came in for two quick first downs (one on an 11-yard gain, one on a facemask). On the next play, Brown's play-action pass was intercepted by Merrill Noel and returned into the red zone. The Demon Deacons scored on Tanner Price's touchdown run, making it 17-3.

On Maryland's next drive, Brown threw another interception, this one in triple coverage to A.J. Marshall. That resulted in another Wake Forest touchdown -- a pass from Mike Campanaro to Tanner Price, making it 24-3.


Maryland WR Long carted off, possible broken ankle

Star Maryland receiver Deon Long was carted off the field in the second quarter of Maryland's game against Wake Forest with what looked to be a serious leg injury. ESPN 980 says Randy Edsall thinks it might be a broken ankle.

The Terps ran an option play to the left side, and C.J. Brown pitched it to Brandon Ross, who ran it near the first down line. While the play was going on, Long was blocking on the left side, but a defender rolling up on his leg, bending it in an extremely unnatural and painful way.

Long was carted off the field, and the extent of the injury is not yet known. Stefon Diggs was also injured on the play, but his injury did not look serious.

The junior entered the game with the team lead in receptions (28), with 446 yards and one touchdown. He was leading the team with four receptions for 43 yards in the day.

Terps trail 10-0, Whitlock rampages

Nikita Whitlock has been an nightmare for Maryland, with four tackles for a loss and two sacks in the first quarter, and the Terps trail on the road 10-0 after a quarter.

Maryland had a troubled start to the game, as Whitlock broke through into the backfield and took C.J. Brown down for a 14-yard loss. The Terps punted the ball after a three-and-out, giving the Demon Deacons excellent field position.

Two plays into the next drive, Josh Harris burst through the middle for 28 yards. Maryland's goal-line defense came through on the next two plays, but Harris dove into the end zone on third-and-goal for the one-yard touchdown run and the 7-0 Wake lead.

The Terrapin offense got working on the next drive, with back-to-back completions from C.J. Brown to Deon Long for 17 and eight yards. After a two-yard gain to Stefon Diggs, C.J. Brown ran for a first down. After another Brown run, the play-action pass worked perfectly, finding Dave Stinebaugh for a 16-yard gain and bringing Maryland into the red zone. Whitlock continued to give Brown problems, however, and the Terps settled for a 35-yard field goal attempt from Brad Craddock, which missed wide.

Maryland forced a punt on Wake's next drive, but the Terps' were unable to get anything going after yet another Whitlock sack (his second of the quarter and fourth tackle for a loss). On Wake's next drive, Will Likely made a great play defending Mike Campanaro (his second such play of the day), forcing a 51-yard field goal attempt that Chad Hedlund made, making it 10-0 at the end of the quarter.

Some stats:

C.J. Brown: 5/6, 54 yards

Brandon Ross: Three rushes, eight yards

Deon Long: Three receptions, 27 yards
