Maryland football head coach D.J. Durkin announced that quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome tore his ACL and will be out for the season.

Pigrome, a sophomore, was named the starter last week and went 9/12 for 175 yards and two touchdowns. He had 64 yards on 11 rushing attempts as well before exiting the game with an injury. True freshman Kasim Hill replaced him and helped Maryland to a 51-41 victory, and will take over as the full-time starter now.

Hill was 3/3 for 44 yards and ran five times for 14 yards and a touchdown in Pigrome’s place. He should have time to adjust with the Terps facing Towson out of the FCS on Saturday.

Durkin also announced that starting BUCK defensive end/linebacker Jesse Aniebonam fractured his ankle and had surgery on Tuesday. He isn’t ruled out for the season, but will likely miss a large chunk of time. Defensive back Antwaine Richardson, who exited on a stretcher after a scary collision, is under concussion protocol.

The Terps gained national notoriety after upsetting the No. 23 Longhorns, but have some holes to fill as they move forward into a very difficult schedule.
