Kenny Tate Injury Update: Maryland Star Linebacker Having Season-Ending Surgery, School Announces

Star Maryland linebacker Kenny Tate will have season-ending surgery and miss six to nine months. The school will apply for a medical redshirt on Tate's behalf.

A tough season for the Maryland Terrapins football team just got worse. Star linebacker Kenny Tate, out the past few weeks, has officially been ruled out for the rest of the season. Tate will have season-ending surgery and miss six to nine months of action. Via Ben Standig:

Kenny Tate, a senior LB, will have surgery this week and be out of action six to nine months. #Terps will seek a medical redshirt

Several Maryland beat reporters have said the team will seek a medical redshirt for Tate, but because he played in four games this season, over 30 percent of his team's contests, it's possible the redshirt will not be granted.

Oddly enough, Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall still will not disclose what the exact nature is of Tate's season-ending injury. Tate was the Terps' leading returning defensive player last season and was a preseason all-ACC first team selection.
