COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy has ligament damage in his right thumb, an injury that will sideline him for at least three weeks and return Chris Turner to the starting role.
Steffy hurt his thumb Saturday in the Terrapins' 14-7 win over Delaware. He won the starting job over the summer, but now must watch from the sideline while Turner runs the offense with help from backup Josh Portis.
A year ago, a concussion in the fifth game of the season knocked Steffy from the starting spot. He was replaced by Turner, who guided the Terrapins into the Emerald Bowl.
Steffy will need surgery on his thumb, coach Ralph Freidgen said, but the fifth-year senior has decided against the procedure in hopes of returning this season.
Turner will start Saturday against Middle Tennessee State. As he did against Delaware, Portis will play on selected series.
