In the wake of losing three key players this weekend, Maryland released an updated depth chart Monday night that shakes up the wide receiver and safety position.
Marcus Leak will start at wide receiver this week in place of Taivon Jacobs, who is lost for the season with a knee injury suffered against James Madison. Sophomore wide receiver Malcolm Culmer will back up Leak, and redshirt freshman safety Elvis Dennah will back up Sean Davis. Those changes come after veteran wide receiver Levern Jacobs and safety A.J. Hendy were suspended Friday night for violation of the student code of conduct.
Leak, who took a leave of absence last year after finishing second on the team in receptions in 2012, had two catches for 17 yards in the win over James Madison.
After the losses of the Jacobs brothers, the wide receiver rotation will certainly look different when the team travels to South Florida this weekend. Sophomore Jacquille Veii will remain Stefon Diggs’s backup, while sophomore Amba Etta-Tawo will back up Deon Long.
The loss of Taivon Jacobs also means starting cornerback Will Likely will move to kick returns alongside Diggs.
