Starting Maryland Terrapins quarterback C.J. Brown has been knocked out of the 2012 season by way of a knee injury during a non-contact drill, the school announced Wednesday. The Terps had declared a 2:15 p.m. ET press conference to discuss injury news, which would seem to indicate major news, and, yep, this qualifies as very major.

With Danny O'Brien having left for Wisconsin, that likely leaves true freshman Perry Hills, a Rivals three-star, as the next in line for the Terps, with fellow freshman Caleb Rowe backing. With true freshman Stefon Diggs also providing the best hope for a true offensive weapon, it's going to be a youth movement for the Maryland offense, by necessity.

In 2011, Brown threw for 842 yards and rushed for 574, taking the starting spot from defending ACC Freshman of the Year O'Brien around midseason.

Please console a Maryland fan near you right away:
