Earlier this week, C.J. Brown returned to Maryland football’s depth chart. The quarterback – Maryland’s presumptive starter – is working his way back from an ACL tear suffered during last August’s training camp.
His inclusion on the depth chart confirmed what the team had hoped and anticipated – that Brown is ready to go. He was limited to 7-on-7 drills during recently completed spring practices.
On Thursday, coach Randy Edsall elaborated on the condition of Brown, who will be a fifth-year senior next season.
“C.J. has been cleared for everything,” Edsall said. “I was very pleased. You could just see the confidence he was gaining every time out there (in the spring). There’s not going to be any limitation, there’s not going to be any hesitation on his part. He was driving off that leg and doing the things that you need to do as a quarterback.”
Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe also suffered ACL injuries last season, but are expected to be ready by August. It’ll be a crowded quarterback field with transfer Ricardo Young also in the mix. Freshman Shane Cockerille (Gilman) will also arrive in the fall. Transfer Dustin Dailey and Young were the quarterbacks in the spring football game.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
