Damonte Dodd, starting center for Maryland, will miss the three games due to a left knee injury.
Prior the Terrapins' game against Howard, it was announced that Dodd will miss the game with a sprained medial collateral ligament. The injury occured at a team practice on Monday.
The 6'11" senior has started in six of the team's nine games averaging 5.9 ppg and 5.3 rpg. He is the team leader in blocks with 17. Starting in his place was junior, Michal Cekovsky, making his first start of the season.
Dodd is to be reevaluated after the three games he will miss, which will be after Maryland's home game against Jacksonville State on Dec. 12.
