Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown is day-to-day after suffering a concussion in the Terrapins’ 63-0 loss to Florida State, head coach Randy Edsall said on Sunday.

Brown suffered the injury during the second quarter after getting hit hard by Seminoles Christian Jones and Jacobbi MacDaniel. He remained on the ground for several minutes before walking to the locker room under his own power.

The senior finished just 6 of 14 for 82 yards against FSU. He was also held to three yards on three carries as the ‘Noles bottled up the Terrapins’ read option plays. Despite the rough outing, Brown is still ranked 13th nationally in passing efficiency.

Caleb Rowe came in for Brown and threw for 119 yards on 9-of-17 passing.

“I thought Caleb went in and really did some good things yesterday,” Edsall said. “He’s always made himself ready to play if the situation calls for it.”

The 4-1 Terps will play Virginia this coming Saturday.

    The second guy came in after the QB threw the ball. Late hit, roughing the passer, you could even call it targeting because he did lead with his helmet.

    It’s really annoying when conferences let things go and don’t penalize the top or flagship teams. That’s the direction we’re headed.

    Lol you obviously dont watch a lot of Fsu games. Ill admit we got away with one on that play but trust me thats usually not the case.

    Barnesaintsmart, look at the footage again, its at the 5:33 mark of the second quarter.
    The QB releases the ball as the defender took less than a step, planting his forehead in the QB’s chest. This isn’t a late hit because unlike you apparently he’s not some magical being who can go from full speed to inert in half a step.
    Also, the hit only ended up being forehead to chest, and not facemask to sternum because Christian Jones, another player, tackled the qb from behind as McDaniel was coming in, pushing the Qb foreward towards the lineman. Not something anyone could have anticipated, nor actually targetting because he didn’t actually hit with the crown of his helmet.
    If he really got a concussion, he must not be that durable. If you watch the play you’ll also see that his head doesn’t move much in the pay. It never gets hit by anything.

    Ummmm no. He was in the grasp. Had released the ball. the second defender took 2 full steps and drilled him with his helmet first while he was on the way down and didn’t have the ball. Blown call ina big way.
