US PRESSWIRE Sports University of Maryland sophomore wide receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro was expected to return back to the field after missing four consecutive games for the Terps’ football team, but early Tuesday morning Cheeseboro was hit by a bus and suffered a concussion, Coach Randy Edsall told reporters. A speedy asset to the Terps’ special teams, Cheeseboro was pedaling his bicycle heading north across the campus to get to a 6:30 a.m. meeting at Gossett Team House. As he began to approach the roundabout on Campus Drive a bus pulled up from the east meeting Tyrek at the crossing. According to a University of Maryland police spokesman, it appeared “like each person was letting the other go.” Then they both started at the same time which evidently led to the crash. The bus wasn’t able to stop in time to avoid hitting Cheeseboro, who ended up crashing into the driver-side window and shattered the glass. He was flipped off his bike and slid a couple feet across the concrete while striking his head against the curb, all while avoiding any broken bones. As his teammates quickly approached the scene, they called 911, Coach Edsall and the team trainer Wes Robinson. The College Park volunteer fire department responded to the crash and took Cheeseboro to the hospital. Edsall told media that “everything checked out.” However, the Terps do have a history with on-campus injuries involving athletes. Three years ago, offensive lineman Pete DeSouza broke both legs after an on-campus motor scooter accident. DeSouza collided with a vehicle outside of Cole Field House at night. The crash required DeSouza to get surgery which evidently ended his career, although he eventually found a job as a student coach for the Terps. Cheeseboro, however, emerged from the crash relatively unharmed despite his concussion-which Coach Edsall said wasn’t serious enough to keep him out from playing that long, though Tyrek missed some time on the field last season too after a concussion. He says that he only has some left-side soreness and a couple scratches along with road burn. “He’s lucky. He’s a fortunate young man. I think sometimes with situations like that, being an athlete, being in that kind of condition that he was in, I think that helped. But he’s very lucky,” Edsall had to say about the accident. Prior to suffering his first concussion during last season, Cheeseboro had become a valuable special teams asset for Marland, who brought speed and a great amount of toughness into their lineup. Although he has yet to catch a collegiate pass, he was listed as a backup on the latest two-deep depth charts behind No. 3 wide receiver Malcolm Culmer. “I’m hoping, again I don’t know this, but we’ll see how he is Sunday and Monday next week,” Edsall said. “But right now, like I said, other than the concussion, I mean he’s just sore. There’s no broken bones or anything along those lines.” As of now, Tyrek Cheeseboro’s return is day-by-day and depends on how quickly he is able to get through testing.   Feel free to follow us on Twitter: @DCSportsKings @meaghannn_ Related Articles:  Terps brave elements, smash rival Mountaineers
