Running back Jake Funk is inactive for Maryland football’s game at Bowling Green due to a hand injury, team officials announced. The team offered no details on its severity.
The junior has been a consistent special teams player for the Terps since 2016 and broke out more often in the running game in 2017. Last year, the Gaithersburg native scored four touchdowns on 145 yards.
In Maryland’s season opener against Texas, Funk ran for -2 yards on two carries.
Funk often featured as a return man, lining up with running back Ty Johnson. Early in the contest against the Falcons, Johnson lined up as a lone receiver on the opening kickoff. On a punt return, wide receiver Jeshaun Jones stood about 15 yards in front of wide receiver Taivon Jacobs.
It’s unclear when or how Funk sustained the injury.
In Funk’s place, running backs Tayon Fleet-Davis and Anthony McFarland figure to supplement Johnson and Lorenzo Harrison.
