                 === Maryland suspends RB Brown for season ===
 
 College  Park, MD  (Sports Network) - Maryland running back Wes Brown, who was
 second on the team in rushing yards in 2012, has been suspended for the entire
 upcoming season.
 
 Earlier  this  week, the  Prince  George's  County State's  Attorney's  Office
 dismissed  three  criminal charges  against Brown,  according to the Baltimore
 Sun. The charges are from a July 3 encounter with police.
 
 According  to the  newspaper, Brown  was charged  with second-degree  assault,
 wiretapping  and  stealing  a  cell  phone.  The  Sun  says  Baltimore  police
 detectives came to College Park and wanted to question Brown about a non-fatal
 shooting  in  Baltimore,  but  the  running back  resisted  coming  to  police
 headquarters. He was reportedly accused of shoving a police detective.
 
 "We  support the  University of  Maryland's decision,"  Terrapins coach  Randy
 Edsall said. "I have spoken with Wes. He accepts the sanctions and understands
 what is expected of him moving forward."
 
 Brown rushed for 382 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season.
