The practice was scheduled to be open to the media, but that was cancelled because of the injury. Coach D.J. Durkin is expected to be available to the media after practice Friday.
Conyers is a senior from St. Petersburg, Florida, who is entering his second season of eligibility with the Terrapins. He appeared in nine games in 2015, posting 15 tackles, 2 tackles for loss and a pass breakup.
He transferred to Maryland from Butte College (California) and sat out the 2014 season with a redshirt. The Washington Post profiled Conyers back in April.
