Pete DeSouza suffers two broken legs in scooter accident
Maryland starting right tackle Pete DeSouza suffered two broken legs in an on-campus scooter accident Thursday night. The athletic department just issued a release on his condition:
"Maryland football player Pete DeSouza was injured in an accident Thursday evening on campus.
DeSouza, a redshirt freshman offensive lineman, suffered non-life threatening injuries - fractures in both lower legs. He was having surgery Friday morning and is expected to remain in the hospital throughout the weekend.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Pete and his family, and we’ll help them anyway we can,” head coach Ralph Friedgen said. “We hope he makes a speedy recovery.”
DeSouza will not travel with the team Friday to Boston College. He is expected to make a full recovery, but will be out for the rest of the season."
