Maryland Vs. West Virginia: Kerry Boykins, Keith Bowers Ruled Out Of Saturday's game

The Terrapins face the Mountaineers on Saturday

Presswire

Maryland Terrapins senior wide receiver Kerry Boykins and sophomore defensive lineman Keith Bowers have been ruled out for Saturday's non-conference contest against the No.8-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers (12 p.m. on FX), the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Barker is reporting. Boykins is dealing with a hamstring injury, while Bowers is trying to recover from an injured calf.

Last week, Boykins caught two passes for just 15 yards in the Terps' 24-21 loss to the Connecticut Huskies. In his place, head coach Randy Edsall will start freshman Stephon Diggs, who collected a team-best three catches for 57 receiving yards against the Huskies.

Meanwhile, Bowers has dealt with a few health issues this season. The backup to senior A.J. Francis missed Maryland's season opener against William & Mary due to an injury, but did play in the last two games making just two total tackles.
