If Wes Brown is going to have an impact this season, he’ll have to wait a big longer.
The senior running back will start the season on a 3-game suspension due to his prior violation of the school’s code of conduct, 247Sports‘ Josh Stirn reports.
Durkin said Wes Brown will be suspended for the first three games due to previous incident with the old staff.

Brown made his first start of the 2015 season against Michigan State, running for 52 yards on 12 carries in the team’s 24-7 loss. He then received an indefinite suspension. His season over, he missed the last two games, finishing third on the team with 317 yards and three TDs.
Brown was also suspended for the 2013 season after an arrest. He was later reinstated and rushed for 356 yards with six TDs in 2014.
The 3-game suspension means Brown will miss Maryland’s games against Howard, Florida International and UCF. The Terrapins then play Purdue on Oct. 1 in the fourth game of the season.
