Offseason surgeries for Terps LB Alex Twine, S Sean Davis


Cleanup surgeries are routine procedure once the season ends, chances for Maryland’s football players to repair the small tears or breaks that occurred during the season but weren’t bad enough to keep them off the field. The month-long winter break ahead offers an optimal recovery time, too, so they can return for the spring semester already far down the recovery road.

Linebacker Alex Twine (labrum) and safety Sean Davis (elbow) both underwent such surgeries on Monday, according to their Twitter accounts. Davis, a sophomore, started all 13 games this season and led the Terrapins with 102 tackles. His two interceptions ranked second on the team, as did his five passes defended.

Twine grew into a special teams standout this season and finished with 49 tackles in 11 games. He also recovered a fumble and forced one, too.




If history is any indication, the news of more surgeries could trickle out over the next few weeks.
