Davis: "I Saw and Heard Everything"

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-- Maryland safety Sean Davis talks about watching his teammates go down with injuries, and the emotional toll of a loss like Saturday's against Wake Forest.

"I heard it and I didn't watch the replay because I didn't want to look at it."

Maryland safety Sean Davis stood helplessly on the sidelines as he watched not one, but two, of Maryland's biggest playmakers and most vocal leaders go down right in front of him.

"It was hard for me because I was right there and I saw and heard everything," Davis said. "It was hard hearing both of them scream, but it is what we get ourselves into playing [football]."

Both Stefon Diggs and Deon Long went down just a few feet from the Maryland bench, including Davis.

"I was a little shaken up, but luckily it was on offense so I had a chance to recover," Davis said.

When C.J. Brown left the Florida State game with a concussion, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall didn't get a chance to talk with the team before they went back out on the field. Tonight, Edsall made sure he brought the team in as soon he realized the severity of Long's injury. After the game, Davis said he thought Edsall's adjustment had a positive impact on the team.

"He brought us in and we recovered, we regrouped and then right after halftime we came out and scored," Davis said. "It just shows that we have it in us to fight when we are down. We just have to keep digging in deeper when we are down and not get discouraged or guys giving up.

"We just have to keep fighting."
