COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - For the second year in a row, a rash of injuries is threatening to ruin a potentially successful season for Maryland's football team.

A year ago, the Terrapins lost four quarterbacks as a 4-2 start turned into a six-game losing streak and a 4-8 finish.

The Terrapins were 5-1 this year before their top two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, both broke a leg last week in a 34-10 loss at Wake Forest.

Diggs and Long are among nine players out for the season, six on defense.

Not only that, but quarterback C.J. Brown sustained a concussion against Florida State on Oct. 5 and was ineffective before being pulled against Wake Forest.

Coach Randy Edsall has not decided whether Brown or Caleb Rowe will start Saturday against ninth-ranked Clemson.
