COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland senior quarterback Caleb Rowe is going through the school’s concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the team’s 47-28 loss to Indiana on Saturday in College Park.
Head coach Mike Locksley said Rowe was injured sometime around the "middle to the end of the second quarter."
When reviewing game film, he appeared to be injured around the 2:58 mark of the second quarter when he ran out of the pocket to the right side of the field and dove forward. Indiana defensive back Will Dawkins made contact with Rowe’s head and the Maryland senior rose to his feet and left the game under his own power in the direction of the sideline where he was examined by medical staff.
Backup quarterback Shane Cockerille entered the game for three plays before Rowe re-entered for the next six. Maryland would turn the ball over on downs on that drive, the team's final offensive possession of the half. After halftime, Rowe did not come back into the game.

When asked after the loss, head coach Mike Locksley said that he was informed at halftime that the senior had been ruled out but that he was unaware of the exact play on which Rowe was injured.
“I do know that our athletic administration has protocol for concussions. I know the Big Ten has a spotter upstairs that is involved,” Locksley said.
“I don’t know when it happened. I haven’t had an opportunity. I just recall them telling me going into halftime that he was out. I know that he came out for a play, but obviously the medical people and the spotters and all those people that are involved follow the protocol that we have in place and that’s how we played the game.”
Rowe’s status for Saturday’s season finale against Rutgers is unclear.
Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.
Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.
Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.
With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders. The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.
Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off. Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them. He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).
No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.
Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.
After today though, it may be hard to say no.
D.J. Moore has an adorable new puppy!
Days after the Carolina Panthers selected Moore as the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the former Maryland wide receiver returned to his roots and paid a visit to College Park.
But the first-rounder wasn’t alone when he went to Maryland. According to the Terps’ football Twitter account, he brought his new puppy with him. Seriously, look at this puppy!

The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.
He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
