Maryland WR Jones out for year with torn ACL

Maryland wide receiver Jeshaun Jones will miss the 2019 season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during practice Monday, the team announced.

Jones stood out as a freshman in 2018, recording seven touchdowns and starting two games for the Terrapins. He had 22 receptions and 18 rushes, and his five receiving touchdowns marked the most by a Maryland freshman since Stephon Diggs in 2018.

Jones also became the first Big Ten freshman to record two games with both a touchdown catch and a touchdown run since Ohio State's Maurice Clarett in 2002.

The 6-foot-1, 189-pound Jones, a native of Fort Myers, Florida, will redshirt the season and have three years of eligibility remaining.
