PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Maryland football's quarterback injury troubles returned against Rutgers Saturday.

Josh Jackson suffered a low hit late in the second quarter, going down to the ground for several minutes before being helped off the field by trainers, barely able to put any weight on his right leg.

He was on crutches with his shoe off as the team walked off the field into the locker room at halftime. Coach Mike Locksley said after the game that Jackson suffered a high ankle sprain.

It had seemed like Jackson was finally starting to get back into his rhythm for Maryland as he went 9-16 with 179 total yards and two touchdowns. Now he’ll have to wait to hear whether he’ll return again for the Terps this season.

Backup Tyrrell Pigrome will take over for Maryland in the second half.

Here is the video of the injury, be advised it is graphic in nature.
