It appears likely that he’ll start this week against Minnesota.

Maryland quarterback Perry Hills missed the entire second half of the team’s loss to Penn State after suffering a shoulder injury, but head coach DJ Durkin provided an optimistic view of his quarterback’s future in his weekly teleconference on Monday.

Hills left Saturday’s game at the very end of the first half and was replaced by freshman Tyrrell Pigrome. No matter who was in at quarterback for Maryland, the Terps couldn’t get anything going through the air against Penn State, finishing with 100 yards on 16 passing attempts. The Terps will need to improve upon that effort against Minnesota this week.

This is the second time Hills has faced injury questions this season, as he also came out with a shoulder injury in Maryland’s win over UCF. He suffered that injury in overtime, and Pigrome came in and ran for a game-winning touchdown on the very next play.

While Hills did not return to Saturday’s game after suffering his injury, he did stay in full pads on the sideline.
