Maryland football safety Denzel Conyers is trying to get a waiver to play 1 more year

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Football: Maryland at Central Florida Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Denzel Conyers’ senior season for Maryland football ended far too soon when he tore his ACL in the Terps’ third game of the season against UCF. At the time it was unclear whether he would try to get an additional year of eligibility, or if he even wanted one. That isn’t a mystery anymore.

A player needs to have competed not competed in more than 30 percent of his team’s games to get a medical hardship waiver. Conyers only played in three games this season, so that seems to suggest he’ll at least have a shot at getting one.

Conyers kept at it all day on Twitter.

Conyers didn’t register any stats in his first season at Maryland, was a role player last year, then secured a spot as a starting safety this season. He had 11 tackles in three games.

We’ll have more information on this situation if and when it becomes available.
