The season-ending injury to quarterback C.J. Brown unfortunately will not be the only major one impacting the Maryland Terrapins this fall.
Second-year coach Randy Edsall will have to deal with significant injuries on the defensive side of the ball too, starting with defensive end Andre Monroe (pictured). Monroe, who started four games last year and was expected to start this season, will miss the season with a knee injury that will require surgery.
“It’s amazing because Andre Monroe, he was just running straight ahead. He was running a sprint and his knee kind of gave out and that was it,” Edsall said. “So a lot of the issues that we have haven’t even been contact-type situations. (You) “just work the guys that are out there — that’s all you can do.”
Also out for various lengths are linebacker Kenny Tate (leg), cornerback A.J. Hendy (ankle), cornerback Isaac Goins (mono) and safety Matt Robinson (left arm).
We’ve said it before: it didn’t feel like Maryland could stoop much lower than last year’s 2-10 effort. Injuries could keep it on par, though. That’s unfortunate for Edsall since there’s absolutely nothing he can do about them.
