Maryland senior quarterback C.J. Brown is cleared to play against Syracuse on Saturday, Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall said during the ACC coaches’ teleconference Wednesday.“C.J., he’s ready to go,” Edsall said. “He’s cleared. He’s practiced last week and he needed that time off to get himself healed up.”Brown suffered a concussion in Maryland’s loss to No. 3 Florida State on Oct. 5, and missed two of the team’s last three games with lingering effects.But he’s just one of the injured playmakers whose absence has hampered Maryland this season. The losses of superstar sophomore wide receiver Stefon Diggs and fellow wideout Deon Long — coupled with Brown’s concussion — has led to a steep decline in the Terrapins’ passing success.“We’re down a few guys that he doesn’t have in there with him that we had earlier in the season,” Edsall said. “But like I said he’s a really good leader and he’s a guy that knows the offense, understands it and has experience.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBrown shined through the first third of the season, throwing seven touchdowns to one interception as the Terrapins went 4-0. But in his lone game since the blowout at the hands of the Seminoles, Brown was 15-for-24 for 137 yards and a season-high two interceptions against Wake Forest on Oct. 19.Sophomore Caleb Rowe has thrown for 989 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions filling in for Brown.

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error MOVE THEY COULD MAKEWith the Philadelphia Phillies landing Realmuto, perhaps they would be willing to part with Andrew Knapp. Knapp is a 27-year-old switch hitter with a career .330 on-base percentage in 140 big league games. He’s got a .349 on-base percentage in the minors. Knapp also has options. Although Knapp doesn’t quite fit the Angels’ desire to have defensive-minded catchers, a switch-hitting catcher who gets on base and has options would be a nice depth piece. Having Knapp, Smith, Briceño and Garneau would give the Angels plenty of competition for the job backing up Lucroy, and coverage if he gets hurt.Related Articles As the Angels head toward the first workout of spring training on Wednesday, we are providing breakdowns of how they stand with their roster by position groups. Players acquired this winter include the method of their acquisition in parentheses. Today is the final installment, looking at the catchers. Previously, the rotation, bullpen, infield and outfield.2018 RECAPMartín Maldonado returned as the Angels’ primary catcher after winning a Gold Glove in his first major league season as a starter. Maldonado’s offense deteriorated in 2017, likely because of the wear of catching the most games in the majors, and in 2018 the Angels hoped to lessen his workload and maintain his offense. It didn’t really work out. Maldonado caught 79 of 103 games before he was traded, hitting .223 with a .616 OPS. After he was dealt to the Houston Astros, the Angels split the job between rookies Francisco Arcia and José Briceño. Although they combined for some nice moments, they didn’t produce much offensively either. Overall, the Angels ranked 24th in the majors in OPS from behind the plate. Defense, however, is what the Angels value most in their catchers, and in that regard, they did well.HOW IT LOOKS RIGHT NOWGeneral Manager Billy Eppler said from the start of the winter that they were looking for a catcher. They made an early inquiry into the Miami Marlins’ J.T. Realmuto, but the cost was too high for the Angels and he was traded to Philadelphia on Thursday. They also engaged with the top two free agent catchers, Yasmani Grandal and Wilson Ramos, but both eventually signed elsewhere. The Angels instead grabbed Jonathan Lucroy (free agent) on a one-year deal. Lucroy, 32, is a few years removed from being one of the game’s best catchers. Last season with the Oakland A’s, he hit .241 with a .617 OPS. Lucroy said he discovered some swing issues over the winter, and he has expressed confidence that he can correct them. He still helped nurture a young Oakland pitching staff into the playoffs in 2018. The Angels also picked up Kevan Smith (waivers) from the Chicago White Sox, and he and Briceño will battle for the backup job. Smith, who is out of options, appealed to the Angels because of his .348 on-base percentage last year. Arcia was designated for assignment and signed with the Chicago Cubs.THE NEXT LAYERThis could be an issue for the Angels. They don’t have a catcher among their top 30 prospects, according to MLB Pipeline. The best is Jack Kruger, who had a .770 OPS at Class-A and Double-A last year. The Angels will also have Dustin Garneau (minor league free agent) in big league camp. Garneau has played 88 games in the big leagues, with the Colorado Rockies, A’s and White Sox.
