C.J. Brown Injury: Maryland Blogger Reaction

Maryland Terrapins quarterback C.J. Brown went down for the season on Wednesday with a torn ACL diagnosis. Our SB Nation Maryland blog Testudo Times reacted to the news and weighed in on where the Terrapins will go from here at the quarterback position after the injury to Brown.

The main takeaway from all of this is how unfortunate it is for a young man who really had a chance to make his mark on a program. It's easy to dismiss athletes as just entertainment and a distraction, but it's important to remember that Brown is a fellow human being who just had his year destroyed. That being said, this is a Maryland blog, and we do have to talk about the football side of things, because the Terps will need a quarterback when they open up against William & Mary in just over two weeks.

Two freshmen will battle for the starting job now: Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe. Hills is the favorite to win the job and is more suited to play the dual-threat role which Brown was going to play. Testudo Times also points out that Devin Burns, who has been moved to wide receiver, has volunteered to help out. Burns was a high school quarterback and redshirted at quarterback behind Brown and Danny O'Brien two seasons ago.
