Date:

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught 12 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-21 loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

Moore (5'11/215) amazingly could have had an even better day if Max Bortenschlager had a semblance of accuracy with the football on Saturday. Still, this is another monster game for one of the best wideouts in the Big Ten conference. His first score was a 12-yarder from Bortenschlager to open the scoring in the first, and they connected on a 52 yard score in the second. Look for Moore to continue to feast next week against Wisconsin.
Oct 14 - 7:07 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager has left Saturday's game against Northwestern with an arm injury.

Backup quarterback Caleb Henderson has replaced Bortenschlager. He is questionable to return.
Oct 14 - 6:53 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) is starting Saturday's game against Northwestern.

Bortenschlager was injured in the third quarter of last weekend's loss to Ohio State. Both he and Caleb Henderson were taking first-team snaps in warmups on Saturday, but it is Bortenschlager taking the reigns to begin against the Wildcats.
Oct 14 - 3:41 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager (undisclosed) has been making positive strides in practice this week.

Terps HC D.J. Durkin said that Bortenschlager has been "progressing well" this week after being forced out of Saturday's loss to Ohio State in the third quarter. While there would appear to be some optimism that the 6-foot-3, 212-pounder might not have to miss any further game action, Durkin has yet to name a starter for this weekend's showdown with Northwestern. Caleb Henderson would draw the assignment if Bortenschlager is ultimately ruled out.
Oct 12 - 2:14 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager completed just 3-of-12 passe for 16 yards before exiting with an undisclosed injury late in the third of a 62-14 loss to Ohio Sate on Saturday.

To be fair to Bortenschlager, he wasn't supposed to be forced into action like this. The only reason he was starting was because two quarterbacks ahead of him are out for the year with ACL injuries. Still, this was ugly. He had very little time to throw, and when he did, he was inaccurate on short, long, and anything in between. He'll look to rebound next week against Northwestern.
Oct 7 - 7:47 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager left Saturday's game against Ohio State after taking a late hit in the third quarter.

Ohio State CB Damon Arnette was ejected for targeting on the play. After Bortenschlager exited stage left, he was replaced by Caleb Henderson -- the fourth quarterback to see playing time for the Terps in what's been an injury-riddled collective campaign at the position. It's unlikely that Bortenschlager returns to Saturday's contest. Expect further updates on his health in the coming days.
Oct 7 - 7:08 PM

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught eight passes for 90 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 win over Minnesota.

He also had a 24-yard carry. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound sophomore has been one of the nation's most consistent receivers this season, despite Maryland's quarterback situation (the Terps have started three quarterbacks already). Moore has had exactly seven or eight receptions in all four of Maryland's games, he's caught at least one touchdown pass in every contest, and he's yet to be held under 83 receiving yards.
Sep 30 - 3:24 PM

Maryland junior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Saturday's 31-24 win over Minnesota.

The 5-foot-10, 184-pound burner (Johnson has been clocked at 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash) continues to be one of college football's most overlooked home run hitters. After leading the nation with 9.1 YPC last year (1,004 rushing yards), he's rushed for 411 yards and four touchdowns on 8.9 YPC through four games in 2017.
Sep 30 - 3:21 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager completed 18-of-28 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-24 victory over Minnesota.

He added 18 rushing yards and another score on the ground. Bortenschlager (6'3/212) began the season as the third-team quarterback, but he ascended to the starting post with Kasem Hill and Tyrell Pigrome both out for the year with torn ACLs. He acquitted himself well in Maryland's Big 10 opener, handing the ball off often and avoiding mistakes when he was in the pocket. The Terps entered the day as double-digit underdogs.
Sep 30 - 3:17 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager will start on Saturday against Minnesota.

Bortenschlager (6'3/212) was the third-team quarterback, but starter Kasem Hill and backup Tyrell Pigrome are both out for the year with torn ACLs. He struggled against UCF last week, throwing two picks and completing 15-of-28 passes in a 38-10 loss. He'll have to play much better if Maryland has any chance of upsetting the Gophers on Saturday.
Sep 29 - 6:10 PM

Maryland HC D.J. Durkin believes redshirt junior QB Caleb Henderson (foot) will be ready for Saturday’s game against Minnesota.

He'd better be. After losing Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill to torn ACLs, the Terps will likely be forced to roll with Max Bortenschlager this weekend. Bortenschlager is the only fully healthy scholarship quarterback on the roster. Henderson (6'3/215) was thought to be the front-runner for the starting job early in the summer before injuries to his ankle and foot led to a tumble down the depth chart. In practice this week, Henderson has been working with the second-team offense. Whenever he's fully healthy, Henderson will be a threat to steal Bortenschlager's job. After those two, Maryland has only two walk-ons at quarterback.
Sep 26 - 5:05 PM

Maryland sophomore QB Max Bortenschlager will likely start on Saturday for the Big Ten opener at Minnesota.

With sophomore Tyrrell Pigrome and freshman Kasim Hill both out for the season with torn ACLs, the Terrapins will turn to their third starting quarterback of the campaign. Incredibly, this is the third straight season and fourth time in six years that Maryland has started three or more quarterbacks in a season. Bortenschlager was just 15-for-26 for 132 yards and two interceptions after coming on in relief of Hill versus UCF on Saturday.
Sep 26 - 4:24 PM

Maryland freshman QB Kasim Hill (ACL) will miss the remainder of the season.

Hill was carted off the field after suffering an ACL tear during Saturday's game against Central Florida. This is a devastating turn of event for the Terps, who had already lost Week 1 starter Tyrell Pigrome to a torn ACL in the opener against Texas. Max Bortenschlager replaced Hill on Saturday and will likely start Saturday against Minnesota.
Sep 26 - 2:57 PM

Maryland sophomore WR D.J. Moore caught eight passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 38-10 loss to UCF.

Moore scored Maryland's lone touchdown of the game on a 20-yard catch with time running out in the third quarter. It was a slog of an offensive contest for the Terrapins on the whole. In three games this season, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound sophomore has put up a respectable 22-313-4 receiving line.
Sep 23 - 6:42 PM

Maryland junior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 25 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 38-10 loss to UCF.

Johnson has always been something of a boom/bust back, but had landed on the "boom" side of the equation in his first two games, rushing for 256 yards (at an insane 24.8 YPC clip) in that space. No such luck against UCF. Over half of his yards in the contest came on one 13-yard run. He'll try for a rebound performance when the Terps hit the road to tango with Minnesota next weekend.
