Tagovailoa ended up going to the medical tent on the sidelines after the hit. Backup quarterback Billy Edwards Jr. came in and threw an incompletion on third down, leading to a Maryland punt.
By the time the next series began, Tagovailoa was back on the field for Maryland.
Tagovailoa is in his third season with Maryland after transferring from Alabama, where his brother Tua played quarterback. Taulia passed for 3,860 yards, 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season.
