Maryland quarterback Kasim Hill has torn a ligament in his knee, the latest obstacle for a football team that’s faced numerous setbacks this season.

Interim coach Matt Canada announced Tuesday that Hill tore his ACL during last week’s game against Indiana, making this his second straight season cut short by a torn ACL.

A year ago, Hill tore his right ACL in the third game of his freshman season. Now, he’s got to deal with surgery and rehabilitation for a second time.

Tyrrell Pigrome will start against No. 9 Ohio State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) on Saturday as the Terrapins (5-5, 3-4) try for a third straight week to get the victory that will make them bowl eligible.

Canada has held together a team grieving from the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair, the firing of coach DJ Durkin and the departure of three trainers involved in treating McNair after he collapsed during a May workout and subsequently died of heatstroke.
