When Maryland football head coach Michael Locksley addressed the media on Tuesday, he disclosed that Maryland football junior wide receiver Jeshaun Jones and junior linebacker Durell Nchami would be out for the remainder of the season due to injuries.

Locksley disclosed that Jones will undergo surgery after suffering a lower-leg injury during the first quarter of the matchup against then-No. 7 Ohio State on Oct. 9.

Jones missed the 2019 season after tearing his ACL.

The loss of Jones further thins out what used to be Maryland’s deepest position group. One week before Jones got injured, wideout Dontay Demus Jr. also underwent season-ending leg surgery after suffering a gruesome injury during the game against then-No. 5 Iowa.

Jones ranks third on the team in receiving with 224 total receiving yards on 18 receptions across six games.

The Terps will also be without Nchami for the remainder of the season as he will undergo season-ending upper body surgery.

Nchami finished his 2021 season campaign with nine tackles, four tackles for loss, three sacks and a forced fumble.

The linebacker missed his entire sophomore season in 2019 after obtaining an injury during the preseason. He did not appear in any game action then.
