Danny O'Brien Injury Update: Maryland QB Out For Year

According to this tweet by Brendan Darr, Maryland Terrapin quarterback Danny O'Brien has been lost for the year. Maryland Head Coach Randy Edsall said that O'Brien broke a bone in his upper arm but would hold out on an official prognosis until more tests had been completed. O'Brien was injured in Saturday night's 45-21 drubbing at the hands of Notre Dame. He was forced to leave the game and did not return.

After being largely ineffective through the opening weeks of the season Edsall named C.J. Brown his starter, but O'Brien was named the starter for the Notre Dame game. Since then, both quarterbacks have had their high and low points, but a Brown injury opened the door back up for O'Brien.

O'Brien was the ACC Rookie of the Year in 2010 after passing for 22 TD's and leading Maryland to a 9-4 finish and a win over the East Carolina Pirates in the Military Bowl. Against Notre Dame he was 14-of-22 for 132 yards with a touchdown and an interception before the injury. The Terrapins' record now stands at 2-8 on the season. They have been eliminated from bowl contention.
