Wes Brown suspended for season
By Andrea Adelson
Maryland running back Wes Brown has been suspended for the 2013 season, the school announced Friday.
"We support the University of Maryland’s decision,” Head Coach Randy Edsall said. “I have spoken with Wes. He accepts the sanctions and understands what is expected of him moving forward."
Brown was suspended indefinitely last month after he was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer. Earlier this week, prosecutors announced they would drop the charges against Brown because they believed he was resisting an unlawful arrest. A Baltimore Police spokesman told The Associated Press that Brown remained a suspect in a shooting in Baltimore in June. Brown's attorney maintains his client had no involvement in the shooting.
Brandon Ross and Albert Reid are expected to carry the load for the Terps this season.
