If the Maryland football team wants to top West Virginia, they'll have to do it without wide receivers Quintin McCree and Ronnie Tyler. Both have been suspended for Saturday's game for a violation of team rules, according to a University press release. Via Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun.

Maryland receivers Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree -- both key senior players -- have been suspended for violations of team rules.

McCree and Tyler are two of the top three Terps on the wide receiver depth chart, so this is a big loss for Maryland. McCree caught seven passes for 43 yards in the season opener vs. Miami, while Tyler caught six passes for 43 yards and a touchdown. Kevin Dorsey, who had a big game vs. Miami, will need to step up in their absence.

We'll be following the lead up to this game in this StoryStream. For more on the Terps, head on over to Testudo Times, and for a view from behind enemy lines, try SB Nation Pittsburgh and The Smoking Musket.
