Maryland freshman quarterback Kasim Hill sustained an ACL tear in his right knee and will be sidelined for the rest of the season, the team announced. Maryland visits Minnesota on Saturday.
Hill sustained his injury during the first quarter of a 38-10 loss to Central Florida on Saturday. He is the second Terrapins’ quarterback to be felled by the injury, as Tyrelle Pigrome tore his ACL against Texas in the first game of the season.
“It happened, it’s the hand we’ve been dealt. They’ll bounce back, they’ll be fine,” Maryland coach D.J. Durkin said. “They’ve got great careers ahead of them here and probably beyond.”
Hill completed 18 of 21 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns to go along with one rushing score in three games this season.
Max Bortenschlager replaced Hill and threw for 132 yards while tossing one touchdown and two interceptions.
