The injuries keep mounting for Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown, who will miss Saturday's game against No. 9 Clemson with an upper-body injury.

Brown sustained a concussion on Oct. 5 against Florida State and sat out a week before being cleared to return last Saturday against Wake Forest. He took several hard hits and was removed in the second half, according to coach Randy Edsall, for health reasons.

Brown was listed as "out" for Saturday's game against Clemson with a "trunk" injury.

The fifth-year senior sat out all last season with a torn ACL and reclaimed his role as starter upon his return this year.

Caleb Rowe will start for the Terrapins (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) against Clemson (6-1, 4-1).
