Maryland freshman quarterback Kasim Hill appeared to suffer a right leg injury during the first quarter of the Terps' game against the University of Central Florida in College Park, Md. Sept. 23.
"I don't have an update," Terps head coach DJ Durkin said after the game. "We'll get him examined and probably know more [Sept. 24]."
Sophomore quarterback Max Bortenschlager entered for Hill and completed 15-of-26 passes for 132 yards. He was picked off twice and sacked five times during the Terps' 38-10 loss to UCF.
Bortenschlager is the third passer the Terps have used in their first three games. Hill replaced sophomore Tyrrell Pigrome during Maryland's 51-41 victory at Texas Sept. 2. Pigrome, who won the starting job out of fall camp, tore the ACL in his right knee.
Hill made his first start during a 63-17 win over Towson Sept. 9, throwing for 163 yards and two touchdowns on 13-of-16 passing. He started the game against UCF by completing his first two passes.
Bortenschlager is the last healthy scholarship quarterback available to Maryland. Junior Caleb Henderson is still recovering from a right foot/ankle injury suffered during the spring.
Walk-on quarterbacks Ryan Brand and Legend Brumbaugh are also on the roster, but offensive coordinator Walt Bell indicated Sept. 6 that running backs Ty Johnson and Lorenzo Harrison are the emergency quarterbacks.
