Dexter McDougle's season-ending and, thus, college career-ending injury in Week 3 vs. Connecticut was the first in a long line of injuries that would follow for Maryland during the 2013 season.

McDougle was forced to undergo extensive surgery to repair damage in the shoulder and has worked for four months to get to this point, a point he shared via Twitter on Sunday.

At the time of the injury, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall acknowledged that McDougle would not play another down in a Maryland uniform, but was confident that he would return for the team's Pro Day in the spring.

With that date fast approaching, it appears McDougle is on track to hit his benchmarks. 

Before going down with the injury against Connecticut, McDougle was having one of the best starts to any season he had in College Park. Against the Huskies, he had already intercepted two passes including returning one for a touchdown.

McDougle graduated from Maryland following the Fall 2013 semester.
