Freshman running back Wes Brown is the latest Maryland football player to go down with an injury. Brown, Maryland’s leading rusher, is scheduled to undergo season ending surgery on Friday to repair an injured labrum in his left shoulder.
Brown originally injured the shoulder against Wake Forest, but remained in the game. Brown missed last week’s game against Clemson with an ankle injury, but when he returned to practice this week he didn’t respond well so Maryland decided to proceed with shoulder surgery.
The Washington Post reports that Brown will be out around 20 weeks, meaning he will miss all of spring practice.
During his eight games this season Brown led the Terps with 90 carries for a 382 yards and two touchdowns.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Michal Cekovsky scored 16 points in his third career start, Jaylen Brantley added 14 and Maryland eased past Howard 79-56 Wednesday night.
Cekovsky went 8 for 9 from the floor in tying his career high for points, set earlier this season against Kansas State. The 7-foot-1 junior also blocked three shots.
Cekovsky started at center for senior Damonte Dodd, who has a sprained left MCL and will be sidelined for at least two more games before being re-evaluated. Dodd leads the team with 17 blocked shots.
Maryland (9-1) led by seven at halftime, upped the margin to 17 with 15:57 remaining and cruised to the finish.
Brantley drilled four 3-pointers on a night the Terrapins received just 10 points from standout guard Melo Trimble.
Charles Williams scored 21 for Howard (1-6) and Solomon Mangham had 16.
Damonte Dodd, starting center for Maryland, will miss the three games due to a left knee injury.
Prior the Terrapins' game against Howard, it was announced that Dodd will miss the game with a sprained medial collateral ligament. The injury occured at a team practice on Monday.
The 6'11" senior has started in six of the team's nine games averaging 5.9 ppg and 5.3 rpg. He is the team leader in blocks with 17. Starting in his place was junior, Michal Cekovsky, making his first start of the season.
Dodd is to be reevaluated after the three games he will miss, which will be after Maryland's home game against Jacksonville State on Dec. 12.
