During Maryland coach Randy Edsall’s weekly conference call on Sunday, he confirmed that quarterback C.J. Brown is day-to-day with a concussion. Edsall did not say what grade of concussion that Brown suffered.
Brown suffered the concussion in the first half of Maryland’s 63-0 loss at the hands of Florida State on Saturday afternoon. As Brown released the football, he was being tackled by a Seminole, but was leveled with a shot to the head by defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. There was no flag on the play and Brown did not return to the game. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, despite being down for several moments.
Brown’s status for next Saturday’s game against Virginia remains uncertain. It sounds like it will be a wait-and-see process throughout the week for the Terps signal caller.
In relief of Brown, backup quarterback Caleb Rowe went 9-for-17 for 119 yards and didn’t throw a touchdown nor an interception. If Brown can’t go, Rowe will likely be the guy. The South Carolina native does have one career start under his belt. Rowe started against Boston College in 2012 and ended up tearing his ACL during that game. In that contest, Rowe went 25-for-44 for 240 yards and two touchdowns, while tossing three interceptions.
