5 questions heading into Maryland’s Red-White spring football game – Baltimore Sun

The Maryland football team that finished DJ Durkin’s first season in College Park with a 6-7 record after a loss to Boston College in the Quick Lane Bowl will look a lot different when it takes the field Saturday for the annual Red-White spring game.

Here are five questions for fans (and media) to consider as the Terps get ready for the 2017 season:

How does Caleb Henderson’s absence from the spring game impact Maryland’s quarterback situation?

The redshirt junior transfer from North Carolina had a good spring, by all accounts, until suffering an ankle injury in practice earlier this week. Durkin said before practice Thursday that the injury was not serious and he expects Henderson to be fully recovered for summer workouts and fall camp.

Still, given Durkin’s approach in making everyone compete for playing time, Henderson had shared snaps with rising sophomores Tyrrell Pigrome and Max Bortenschlager. Pigrome served as the primary backup to Perry Hills last season and Bortenschlager was a surprise starter on the road against Nebraska late in the season.
