Maryland safety Matt Robinson suffered an injury to his left shoulder -- the one that didn't require season-ending surgery last year -- in practice, costing him at least three weeks.

The hits really keep coming for Maryland football, as likely starting safety Matt Robinson will be out for at least three weeks with a shoulder injury suffered Tuesday in practice, according to Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times.

Robinson played all 13 games as a freshman but hurt his right shoulder in the third game last year and needed season-ending surgery. This time, it's his left shoulder. The news is not as grim, but still rough for the Terrapins: Robinson is expected to be an important part of the team's shift to a 3-4 alignment under new defensive coordinator Brian Stewart. The junior was replaced by true freshman Sean Davis in practice, so the team is not loaded at depth at the safety spot. The exact injury and its severity are still unknown, but it appears he will miss the season opener against William & Mary, if not more.

This, of course, comes a day after C.J. Brown's knee injury cost the quarterback his season. Maryland had just two wins under first-year coach Randy Edsall in 2011, and things aren't looking up for 2012 with the injuries the team suffered.
