Sophomore guard Pe'Shon Howard's injury will force him to be out 10-12 weeks.

An already thin Maryland men's basketball team has received devastating news, as sophomore guard Pe'Shon Howard broke his foot in practice and is expected to be out 10-12 weeks, said coach Mark Turgeon according to a team press release.

The broken bone in Howard's left foot will keep him from any workouts short-term, according to the release.

“I feel bad for Pe'Shon,” Turgeon said in a news release this morning. “He worked so hard and had a great summer and early fall. He's been practicing and playing well for us. Hopefully, we'll get a lot better by the time Pe'Shon joins the team later this year.”

Without Howard for potentially the first three months of the season, the Terps will have only seven healthy scholarship players on roster as the Alex Len situation has yet to be decided.

Howard, who averaged 5.4 points and 3.2 assists last season, was an anticipated part of a dynamic backcourt with sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin and freshman Nick Faust. After playing in all of Maryland's 33 games last season, Howard was expected to play the point guard again this year.
