Perry Hills out for year

Maryland quarterback Perry Hills has sustained a torn ACL in his left leg and will miss the remainder of the season, according to an announcement made by the team on Monday afternoon.

Hills sustained the injury in Saturday's game against North Carolina State after throwing an interception in the second quarter. The true freshman was carted off the field and was unable to put any weight on the injured leg.

After undergoing an MRI on Monday, it was determined that Hills had torn his ACL and would be unable to return to action this season.This news only further exasperates the quarterback position at Maryland as C.J. Brown tore his ACL during preseason workouts and the team lost Danny O'Brien when he transferred to Wisconsin.

Sophomore Devin Burns took over for Hills during Saturday's game and will likely take over the starters duties from here on out. Maryland will play Boston College on the road next Saturday.

Hills to have MRI on Monday

Maryland quarterback Perry Hills will have an MRI on his injured left leg on Monday, according to the Washington Post's Alex Prewitt.

Hills, a true freshman, injured the leg during Saturday's game against North Carolina after throwing an interception in the second quarter. Hills couldn't put any weight on the leg after the injury.

Hills' knee was "extended and bent backward when he tried to make a tackle."

Prewitt tweeted that Hills "went into the locker room ... begging trainers to tape him up and let him return."

Hills, out of Pittsburgh's Central Catholic High School, has completed 57 percent of his passes this season. He's 97 for 169 for 1,336 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's been sacked 24 times this year.

Hills has started every game this season after Maryland lost quarterback C.J. Brown to injury. Brown tore his ACL during preseason workouts.

Maryland is 4-3. The Terrapins will travel to play Boston College on Saturday.
