Edsall remains committed to Brown as Maryland quarterback after bye

Entering their second bye week dealing with a slew of injuries on each side of the ball, the Maryland Terrapins remain firmly committed to quarterback C.J. Brown to lead them in their quest for bowl eligibility.

Brown missed his second ACC game Saturday in Maryland’s 40-27 loss to Clemson, but head coach Randy Edsall eliminated any lingering doubt over who would be under center when the Terps host Syracuse on Nov. 9. Backup quarterback Caleb Rowe completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions in Saturday’s loss.

“Right now, I’m not even thinking about that,” Edsall said in his Sunday conference call with reporters. “I’m just trying to get through this game. C.J.’s ready to go. C.J.’s our starter. We’ll put an end to that right there so you won’t have anything to write for two weeks.”

Brown left the Wake Forest game two weeks ago with what was later described as a trunk injury in Maryland’s injury report last week.
