Two Terps suspended for season opener
Maryland running back D.J. Adams and offensive lineman Cody Blue will not play in Monday's season opener against Miami because of a violation of team rules.
Neither Adams nor Blue was listed in Maryland's post-camp depth chart on Monday. Coach Randy Edsall announced the suspension during Wednesday's ACC teleconference.
"D.J. won't be playing in the game against Miami — he and Cody Blue," Edsall said. "We had a team situation. There was a team issue that was involved. Those two guys won't be available to play against Miami. Once the Miami game is behind us, we'll move forward."
Adams' unavailability explains the most puzzling part of Maryland's first depth chart. Adams rushed for 239 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, emerging as a goal-line back in the final month of the year. In Maryland's last four games, Adams had 38 carries for 83 yards and eight touchdowns. He scored four touchdowns in the Terps' bowl victory against East Carolina.
Senior Davin Meggett is Maryland's starting tailback. Freshmen Jeremiah Wilson and Justus Pickett are listed as the Terps' backups.
Blue played in three games — Morgan State, Wake Forest and East Carolina — last season as a redshirt freshman.
