Maryland wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long both left the Terrapins’ 34-10 loss at Wake Forest on Saturday with leg injuries, and both players will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgeries, Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Diggs was carted off the field after breaking his tibia and fibula during the fourth quarter, according to Barker. He had eight catches for 67 yards at the time he went down. Long went down in the second quarter with a fractured fibula after Demon Deacons linebacker Teddy Mathews landed on Long’s leg. Long had four catches for 43 yards at the time; he came into the game with a team-high 32 receptions on the season.

Following a 4-0 start, Maryland has lost two of its loss three games, including a 63-0 defeat at Florida State on Oct. 5.
