Maryland has had a rash of injuries over the years, and the 2014 season is getting started with some potential depth concerns on the offensive line. Freshman offensive lineman Sean Christie was reported to be in need of surgery to repair a torn ligament in his knee, a potentially season-ending injury.
Maryland head coach Randy Edsall announced the news to media on Saturday, via CSN Baltimore, although he did not state which knee was the focus of the operation. Surgery will be delayed until swelling in the knee reduces to allow doctors to operate.
Christie was buried on the Maryland depth chart, so his loss may end up having minimal impact on the team this season.
