UPDATED 19 October, 2013, 6:26 p.m.

Maryland wide receiver Deon Long left Saturday's game against Wake Forest after suffering an apparent leg injury early in the second quarter in Winston-Salem.

Long was injured as he was blocking for running back Brandon Ross, who was trying to break a run to the left side of the field.

As Long was blocking, Wake Forest linebacker Teddy Matthews rolled up on the back of his leg and Long crumpled to the ground in pain.

He was attended to by trainers and carted off the field after the medical staff examined the leg.

Long had been a major target for quarterback C.J. Brown up to that point in the game, already having accumulated four catches for 43 yards.

According to reports from the game's broadcast, Long was taken to an area hospital for X-rays.

Fellow wide receiver Stefon Diggs was injured early in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

After catching a pass and earning a first down on a crossing pattern, Diggs had his ankle rolled underneath a Wake Forest defender on the tackle.

He was attended to trainers and was helped off the field without putting weight on his right leg.

He was carted off the field with his right ankle wrapped in an athletic bandage and with a towel over his head.
