Maryland starting offensive lineman Pete DeSouza was injured in an accident Thursday evening on campus and will miss the rest of the season, the school announced Friday morning.
DeSouza suffered fractures in both lower legs. He was having surgery Friday morning and is expected to remain in the hospital throughout the weekend.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Pete and his family, and we’ll help them any way we can,” coach Ralph Friedgen said in a prepared statement. “We hope he makes a speedy recovery.”
DeSouza will not travel with the team Friday to Boston College. He is expected to make a full recovery.
