Two Terps suspended
By Heather Dinich
Maryland senior receivers Quintin McCree and Ronnie Tyler have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, the school announced on Thursday. Both started against Miami in the season opener, and together they combined for 13 catches, 82 yards and a touchdown in the Labor Day win.
“The expectation of our program is for our student-athletes to conduct themselves in the proper manner academically, athletically and socially,” coach Randy Edsall said in a prepared statement. “Unfortunately, Quintin and Ronnie fell short of these expectations.”
There is no timetable for their reinstatement.
McCree caught seven passes for 39 yards against Miami and Tyler had six catches for 43 yards and a touchdown.
