Terps escape with a win against UVA

Maryland linebacker Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil will miss the remainder of the season with a pectoral injury, the program announced in its weekly longterm injury report on Monday.

Cudjoe-Virgil played sparingly in Maryland's 27-26 win over Virginia on Saturday after being injured early in the contest.

Head coach Randy Edsall said on Sunday that there were no surgeries scheduled for the team this week.

Cudjoe-Virgil had been part of Maryland's strong and effective front-seven pass rush through the season's first six games and had tallied 18 tackles and an interception.

The interception came in Maryland's 37-0 win over West Virginia on Sept. 21, when he tipped a short pass from Mountaineer quarterback Ford Childress to himself and corralled it while falling to the ground. The turnover set Maryland up inside the red zone.

Maryland's defense has already been hit hard by injury this season.

It was announced Sunday that linebacker Matt Robinson would miss the next 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury.

That comes while cornerback Jeremiah Johnson is still working back from a broken toe that has kept him out since the team's season opener. Fellow cornerback Dexter McDougle is out for the season after undergoing surgery to repair an injury in his shoulder.
