Maryland running back Wes Brown suspended indefinitely

Monday November 16th, 2015

Maryland running back Wes Brown was suspended indefinitely Monday for violating the university’s student-athlete code of conduct, reports The Washington Post’s Roman Stubbs.

This is the second suspension of Brown's collegiate career with the Terrapins. The redshirt junior was suspended for the entirety of the 2013 season when he was arrested and charged with felony wiretapping, assaulting a police officer and theft.

Brown was reinstated to Maryland’s program before the 2014 season.

In last week’s 24–7 loss to Michigan State, Brown made his first start of the season, as he has mostly been used as a backup to Brandon Ross. In 2015, Brown has 71 carries for 317 yards and three touchdowns.

With Brown out, freshman Ty Johnson will now serve as Ross’s backup.

The Terrapins (2–8) host the Indiana Hoosiers (4–6) on Saturday at Capital One Field.
