Justin Anderson Injury Likely To Sideline Maryland Defensive Lineman For Six Weeks

The defensive line of the Maryland Terrapins suffered a blow when it was announced versatile end and tackle Justin Anderson had foot surgery and will be out at least six weeks.

The Maryland football team suffered a big blow today, as versatile defensive lineman Justin Anderson had foot surgery and is expected to miss at least six weeks. Via Jeff Barker's twitter feed:

Maryland DT Justin Anderson, who started preseason camp second on the depth chart, had foot surgery and is out at least six weeks.

Anderson, who has shuffled between defensive end and defensive tackle in his Terrapins career, served as a backup defensive tackle in 2009 and started every game last season as a strong-side defensive end.  Anderson was currently battling with fellow returning starter A.J. Francis and redshirt freshman Andre Monroe for a starting defensive tackle position. Regardless of whether Anderson would be the starter or not, his loss is a big blow to the depth and versatility of the Maryland defensive line.

New head man Randy Edsall and his Terrapins team open the season on Labor Day against the University of Miami.
