Deon Long, Stefon Diggs both out for year after leg injuries

The Terrapins lose their top two offensive playmakers.

More bad news out of Winston-Salem, as star Maryland wide receivers Deon Long and Stefon Diggs will both likely miss the rest of the season with leg injuries suffered in the Terrapins' loss to Wake Forest.

Diggs and Long had formed a lethal one-two punch for the Terrapins this season -- Diggs is one of the most explosive players in the country, while Long is an NFL-ready talent who provided a bit more consistency over the middle.

Sophomore Levern Jacobs and redshirt freshman Amba Etta-Tawo, both talented players in their own right, will be expected to take over for the two stars.

For Maryland, this could have a serious impact on their quest for a bowl berth. They are without their top two cornerbacks, their top pass rushers, their top two offensive weapons, and starting running back Brandon Ross also suffered an injury in the game. Despite the 5-1 start, Maryland could have trouble getting to a postseason game.

Diggs finishes the season with 34 catches for 587 yards and three touchdowns, while Long ends with 32 receptions for 489 yards and one score.
