I am sick to my stomach. Most of all I feel horrible for CJ. He is such a good kid and has worked incredibly hard.
University of Maryland head football coach Randy Edsall on Wednesday announced that starting quarterback C.J. Brown has suffered a torn ACL and will be out for the season.
Brown, a junior who started five games last season, suffered the injury Tuesday night in a non-contact drill.
“I feel terrible for C.J.,” said head coach Randy Edsall. “He’s worked incredibly hard to be the starting quarterback of this team. He’s stepped up and been a tremendous leader. We’ll do everything we can to make sure he gets the best treatment to help in his recovery.
“Although C.J. won’t be out on the field, he’ll continue to be an important part of this program. As a captain and team leader he’ll do everything he can to help mentor the other quarterbacks on our team
