After missing Saturday’s game against Virginia, Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown will return to practice.
Brown suffered a concussion in the first half against Florida State on Oct. 5 and listed as doubtful heading into the game against the Cavaliers. Brown did suit up for pregame warm-ups and tossed the ball around while taking snaps from backup center Evan Mulrooney. Brown was in street clothes on the sideline for the entire game. Backup signal caller Caleb Rowe ended up getting the start and played very well as he threw for 332 yards and a touchdown in a 27-26 Terps victory.
Brown was expected to be back at practice on Sunday afternoon and also expected to be back for next Saturday’s away game at Wake Forest.
The return of Brown to Maryland’s lineup is absolutely essential with the impending schedule for the Terps. As was mentioned above, Maryland has an away game with the Demon Deacons next week and ACC powerhouse Clemson on Oct. 26. Aside from the Florida State game, Brown has played phenomenal this season. In five games, Brown has passed for 1,125 yards and seven touchdowns for the Terps.
Coach Randy Edsall also announced that linebacker Matt Robinson will miss three or four more weeks with a rotator cuff injury. The status of fellow linebackers Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and Alex Twine was not determined as of Sunday.
