Stefon Diggs got his first chance to roam on the first play of Maryland's second drive.

He found an open spot over the middle of the field before catching a pass from quarterback C.J. Brown and running and dancing his way to a 26-yard gain.

Playing in his first game since suffering a lacerated kidney against Penn State on Nov. 1, the junior wide receiver was one of the few bright spots during Maryland's 45-21 loss to Stanford.

Diggs had 10 catches for 138 yards, including that 26-yard catch-and-run that helped set up the Terps' first touchdown, a 1-yard run by Wes Brown that tied the score at 7 early in the second quarter.

"I thought Stefon played a really good game," Edsall said. "It was good to have him back out there. He made plays, and you could see, I don't think there were any ill effects from his injury being back out there."

Diggs finished the season with 62 catches for 792 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games. He was second in the Big Ten in catches per game (6.2) and fourth in receiving yards per game (79.2).

Diggs has until Jan. 15 to decide whether he will declare for the NFL draft or return for his senior season at Maryland.
