Maryland suspends two of its top three receivers

With one game of the 2011 season in the books, Quintin McCree and Ronnie Tyler (pictured) have combined to provide nearly half of the receptions at the wide receiver position for Maryland.

For the foreseeable future, however, neither player will provide anything to the Terps on the field.

In a release, Maryland announced that both players have been indefinitely suspended by first-year head coach Randy Edsall. As for the reason behind the twin suspensions, you know the drill -- unspecified violations of team rules.

The release stated there is no timetable for the receiving duo’s reinstatement.

“The expectation of our program is for our student-athletes to conduct themselves in the proper manner academically, athletically and socially,” Edsall said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Quintin and Ronnie fell short of these expectations.”

McCree is currently second on the team with seven catches, while Tyler is third with six. The latter can also stake claim to the Terps’ lone receiving touchdown on the season.

Following a bye last weekend, Maryland will face No. 18 West Virginia this Saturday.

UPDATED 10:38 p.m. ET: The Washington Post is reporting that Tyler was arrested for second-degree assault Thursday. No details as to what led to Tyler’s arrest have been made available.
