During the 2012 season, the Maryland Terrapins had unbelievably bad luck with injuries, even having to move a freshman linebacker to quarterback at one point.
It looks like Maryland is having that kind of luck again in 2013.
When the Terrapins take on the ninth-ranked Clemson Tigers Saturday, they will be without quarterback C.J. Brown, running back Brandon Ross, tight end Dave Stinebaugh and linebacker L.A. Goree, among others.
In total, 24 players are on the Terrapins’ injury report.
Brown suffered a concussion in the Terrapins’ 63-0 loss to the second-ranked Florida State Seminoles on October 5. Brown missed the Terrapins’ 27-26 victory over the Virginia Cavaliers on October 12, but returned last week in 34-10 loss at Wake Forest.
On the season, Brown is 87-of-137 for 1,262 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He’s also rushed for six touchdowns.
Brown will be replaced by sophomore Caleb Rowe. Rowe is 44-of-85 for 702 yards with two touchdowns and one interception this season.
Ross, a sophomore running back, has rushed for 458 yards and four touchdowns on 91 carries. Ross leads the Terrapins in rushing.
Maryland is already without their best player, superstar sophomore wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who is out for the season with a right fibula. Wide receiver Deon Long is also done for the year after having surgery to fix his broken right tibia and fibula.
The Terrapins and Tigers will kickoff at 3:30 pm EST Saturday and the game is on ESPN.
