Maryland Quarterbacks: Strike Three, They’re Out

(Ethan Hyman/Raleigh News & Observer)

One, two and now three Maryland quarterbacks have been lost for the season. 

The latest to go down is Devin Burn who stepped in for Perry Hills who stepped in for C.J. Brown who replaced Danny O’Brien who transferred. 

The Terps lost starter C.J. Brown to a torn ACL, and then Hills to a similar injury last weekend against N.C. State and now Burns, a converted wide receiver who moved back to his original position just to help out the position.

Burns played in three games this season. His most extensive playing time came when he took over for Hills in the 20-18 loss to NC State, when he rushed for 50 yards and one touchdown. He also completed 3-of-4 passes for 47 yards and helped lead the Terps on three second-half scoring drives.
As a result, Maryland will play Boston College with only one eligible scholarship quarterback on the roster in Caleb Rowe.

And it didn’t stop at the QB position either -- the school also announced that wide receiver Marcus Leak will miss the rest of the season with a fractured toe.
