Maryland Terrapins starting quarterback C.J. Brown is listed as day-to-day after suffering a concussion in the Terrapins’ 63-0 loss to the Florida State Seminoles in Tallahassee, Florida Saturday.
Brown suffered the injury in the second quarter when he was leveled by redshirt senior defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. On the play, Brown avoided a sack by senior linebacker Christian Jones, but Jones hit Brown from behind just after he released the ball. McDaniel came in and drilled Brown from the front. Brown stayed on the ground for several minutes and was replaced by Caleb Rowe.
Although it appeared to be a late hit, no flag was thrown on the play.
Maryland head coach Randy Edsall would not reveal how he would handle what looked to be a dirty play.
“I usually [submit plays for review] every time we play an ACC game if we think there were calls of that nature,” Edsall told Daniel Martin of CSN Baltimore. “I had a chance to see it on tape and I’ll handle it the way I feel is appropriate.”
Here is the play courtesy of the Big Lead:
On the season, Brown, a senior, is 72-of-113 for 1,125 yards with seven touchdowns and one interception. He’s also had two 100-yard rushing games and has scored six touchdowns on the ground.
Rowe, a sophomore, is 14-of-24 for 163 yards with no touchdowns and an interception this season.
The 4-1 Terrapins will host the 2-3 Virginia Cavaliers at 3:30 pm EST Saturday.
