Wes Brown Suspended For Year By University, May Return in January

Rob Carr

The Terps will be one running back short this year.

Maryland running back Wes Brown has been suspended for this year by the University and could return as soon as January, as first reported by Terrapin Station.

Brown was arrested July 3 and charged with second-degree assault, theft under $1,000, and illegal use of wiretapping after an incident with police officers in College Park. The charges were all dropped this week, but Brown appears to still be a person of interest in a non-fatal Baltimore shooting, an incident Brown's lawyer says the running back had nothing to do with.

Since the suspension was handed down by the school, the decision was not made by Randy Edsall. Brown will likely take a redshirt year and return next season. Alex Prewitt says the suspension may be shortened to a semester.

At running back, Maryland is left with co-starters Brandon Ross and Albert Reid, with Joe Riddle backing them up.
