Maryland point guard Seth Allen fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and will be out for eight to 10 weeks, the school announced Wednesday.
Allen suffered the injury in practice on Tuesday. The sophomore is projected as a starter this season for the Terrapins.
"We are devastated for Seth," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "He was playing at a very high level throughout the summer and fall and was poised to have an excellent start to the season. We will support Seth during his rehabilitation process and will prepare him, so he can get back on the court with his teammates."
Allen averaged 7.8 points per game as a freshman.
