Maryland Terrapins to decide on QB C.J. Brown on Thursday


Things were going quite well for senior quarterback C.J. Brown and the Maryland Terrapins. Brown was finally healthy and the Terrapins were off to a 4-0 start heading into a showdown with the unbeaten Florida State Seminoles Saturday.

Then, the Terrapins were destroyed by the Seminoles’ 63-0 and Brown suffered a concussion after a huge shot from Seminoles’ defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. Since then, Brown has been listed as day-to-day.

Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall will make a decision on Brown’s status for Saturday’s game against the Virginia Cavaliers after Thursday’s practice. As of right now, Brown is still listed as the starter.

On the season, Brown has completed 72 of 113 passes for 1,125 yards with seven touchdowns and only one interception. He’s also rushed for another 286 yards and six touchdowns.

“Believe me, we are never going to put any young man on the field with a concussion or any injury, unless they are fully able to play and are cleared by the medical staff,” Edsall told Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun.

If Brown can’t go, junior Caleb Rowe will start in his place. Rowe is 14-of-24 for 163 yards with zero touchdowns and an interception this season.

The Terrapins and Cavaliers will kick off at 3:30 pm EST Saturday.
