Maryland getting thin at WR after losing Taivon Jacobs (knee) for 2014
Taivon Jacobs was hurt in the first quarter of Maryland's opener against James Madison.
Maryland dominated in its Big Ten debut against James Madison on Saturday, as quarterback C.J. Brown accounted for six total touchdowns in a 52-7 win.
But the news was not all good for the Terps as Randy Edsall confirmed Monday that wide receiver Taivon Jacobs will miss the rest of 2014 after suffering knee injury on the first offensive drive of the game.
Jacobs, a redshirt freshman and the brother of suspended wide receiver Levern Jacobs, had an opportunity to start as the third receiver with Stefon Diggs and Deon Long. With Jacobs out, junior Marcus Leak is expected to move into that position. Leak was the team's second-leading receiver in 2012 but left school for personal reasons in 2013.
Season-ending injuries and a thinning roster have become regular concerns for Maryland. Should Diggs, Long or Leak miss any time, next up in the rotation is sophomores Amba Etta-Tawo and Jacquille Veii.
