Maryland football might play a Nebraska team without starting QB Tommy Armstrong

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

When Maryland football takes the field against Nebraska on Saturday, the Huskers might be trotting out someone who isn’t Tommy Armstrong at quarterback.

From the Omaha World Herald:

Armstrong, who is battling a hamstring injury that he suffered on the game-winning touchdown against Minnesota, wore his jersey to practice and threw some in light drills, Riley said.

“It’s too ambitious to say he’s going to play, but we’re still hopeful,” Riley said in Memorial Stadium after practice. “So we’re going to look at it the next couple days.”

Senior backup Ryker Fyfe (yes, really) has seen the majority of snaps in practice so far, so it looks like he’d go if Armstrong can’t.

Maryland quarterback Perry Hills’ status is also unclear for Saturday, so we probably won’t find out who’s starting for either team until their respective offenses take the field.
