Maryland DB Denzel Conyers released from hospital following medical scare
Maryland senior defensive back Denzel Conyers was released from the hospital after a medical scare at practice Thursday afternoon.
Conyers is being treated for a concussion, but is otherwise fine, according to coach D.J. Durkin.
“We had a great news report on that,” Durkin said after practice Thursday. “Denzel was taken to the hospital yesterday. It was precautionary. We did all the tests and everything is clear so he’s good. He’s being treated for a concussion, but everything is good. He was back with us last night. He’s in meetings and with us today.”
Conyers appeared in nine games last season for the Terps, his first campaign after transferring from junior college. The St. Petersburg, Fla. native made 15 tackles in 2015.
He left practice Thursday on a stretcher and was taken to a Baltimore hospital. The practice was open to the media, but closed after Conyers’ injury and post-practice interviews were cancelled.
“Obviously we were very fortunate there. What a great kid and a great player,” Durkin said. “His coaches and teammates were all very concerned about him, but our medical staff did an unbelievable job with how they handled it and how they responded yesterday. Everything is good. Denzel is fine, and will be back practicing with us soon.”
