WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Word trickled into the locker room early Saturday night, when the Maryland football team learned the worst. Some, like backup quarterback Caleb Rowe, saw injured wide receiver Stefon Diggs in the training room and heard that both he and Deon Long were lost for the season with broken legs. Others, like defensive lineman Darius Kilgo, heard from reporters during postgame interviews. Everyone seemed stunned, almost at a loss for words over losing both of the team’s star playmakers.

As is often the case in such situations these days, with availability Twitter provided the best barometer of grief.













Even Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro, who torched the Terps on Saturday, offered his condolences from the opposite locker room.


And third-string quarterback Ricardo Young, a close friend of both Diggs and Long, wants in.
