Blog Photo - Maryland Football: Terrapins Down to One Scholarship QBMaryland coach Randy Edsall is getting his Halloween scare a little early this year.

Third-string quarterback Devin Burns will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury to his left foot Saturday against North Carolina State, reports Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post.

This leaves true freshman Caleb Rowe as the only scholarship quarterback left on the roster.

It seems as if the Terrapins' offense won't miss too much with Burns' absence, however, as Rowe has been said to have a better arm: The 6-foot-2, 185-pound South Carolina native completed 141-of-220 passes (64.1 percent) for 2,722 yards, 33 touchdowns, and seven interceptions with three rushing touchdowns his senior season in high school.

Rowe was a three-star prospect according to Rivals and the No. 26 Pro-Style quarterback in his recruiting class.

You never want to leave your job to a fourth-stringer, but that's what Edsall will be doing when he puts Rowe out there against Boston College this weekend.

Maryland (4-3, 2-1 ACC) needs two wins to become bowl eligible. Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida State, and North Carolina still remain on the schedule and Edsall will likely need to win one of those games to receive another year at the helm.
