Maryland's starting quarterback may not play Saturday.

When the Terps take on Virginia in what could be the last-ever meeting of two rivals, Maryland may be without starting quarterback C.J. Brown.

Brown is "doubtful" for the meeting Saturday afternoon after a concussion suffered in the Terrapins' blowout loss to Florida State last week. He received the injury after what appeared to be a late hit from Seminole defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel.

Caleb Rowe replaced Brown in the game, and completed nine of 17 passes for 119 yards, and average of seven yards per attempt. If Brown is unable to go, Rowe would be his likely replacement. The sophomore from South Carolina has arguably the best arm on the team, but Maryland would sacrifice some mobility in the passing game.

Through four-and-a-half games, Brown has averaged ten yards per attempt, with seven touchdown passes and six touchdown runs. He has set career highs in passing yardage and touchdown runs, and is tied for his career high in passing scores.

We will keep you updated on Brown's status as the game draws nearer. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET in College Park this Saturday.
