Maryland third-string quarterback Max Bortenschlager will undergo season-ending ankle injury and miss the remainder of the season, a team spokesperson confirmed Wednesday to The Left Bench.
With the return of Kasim Hill and Tyrrell Pigrome from last year’s season-ending knee injuries, Bortenschlager’s spot moved back down on the depth chart, but he appeared in all four games as a holder on special teams.
Last season, the junior from Fishers, Indianapolis, played in 10 games and started eight, completing 51.9 percent of his passes and throwing 10 touchdowns to five interceptions.
Due to the NCAA’s new redshirt rule in college football, Bortenschlager will be able to preserve an additional year of eligibility after only appearing in four games this season.
