Terps Lose QB Burns For Season With Foot Injury
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland quarterback Devin Burns is out for the season with a foot injury.
Burns becomes the third Terrapins quarterback to experience a season-ending injury. C.J. Brown tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in August and was replaced by Perry Hills, who tore the ACL in his left knee last Saturday in a loss to North Carolina State.
Burns took over for Hills and ran for a touchdown. Now, however, the sophomore is out for the year with an injury to the middle of his foot.
That leaves true freshman Caleb Rowe to start this Saturday against Boston College. Rowe played one series last week.
The Terrapins also announced Thursday that wide receiver Marcus Leak is out for the year with a fractured toe. He had 23 catches.
