07:17 AM ET 09.16 | On Saturday, Maryland's football team watched from the sidelines as Dexter McDougle howled in pain. None knew the severity of McDougle's injury after the 32-21 win, but any loss would be a blow to the defense he had anchored. Their worst fears were realized Sunday afternoon, when Coach Randy Edsall announced on his weekly conference call that McDougle would soon undergo shoulder surgery, ending both his season and college career. ... [McDougle] will not be eligible for a sixth-year medical redshirt, which Terps quarterback C.J. Brown was granted earlier this year. Those are rare exceptions given to players who miss two seasons due to injury. Since this is McDougle's first ailment since joining the program, he will likely enter the NFL draft next April.

Maryland plays football? Damn, FN is informative.

Maybe Maryland needs to have an Injury Prevention Assistant Coach? They've certainly had a lot of key injuries the last two years. (Didn't they go to a fifth-string QB due to injuries last year?)

Or maybe that's the real reason they're moving to the B1G - they play a more gentlemanly game of football up there, and less prone to injure.

Tough break for Dexter. Personally don't think his NFL draft stock will rise any with that type of injury. Buena Suerte.

Yep, actually converted a linebacker to play qb after 4 kids went down with injuries.
