Maryland QB C.J. Brown knocked out in first half against Florida State

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

Maryland starting quarterback C.J. Brown sustained an injury in the second quarter of Saturday's game against Florida State, and the school announced that he will not return.

The school did mention any specifics regarding Brown's injury, just that the 6-foot-3, 210-pound quarterback was getting X-rays following a vicious hit from Florida State defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel.

Randy Edsall pleaded for a penalty from the officials while trainers tended to Brown following the hit. In the GIF above, you can see McDaniel made contact with Brown's chest, but Edsall could make an argument that the Seminoles' senior led with the crown of his helmet.

Brown walked off the field on his own power, but went directly to the locker room. Sophomore quarterback Caleb Rowe finished the game for the Terps.

This is the second time Brown has been knocked out by Florida State in Tallahassee. Two years ago it was linebacker Nigel Bradham on the hit.
