PULLMAN, Wash. —Jeshua Anderson, the NCAA 400-meter hurdles champion who was expected to play a prominent role on the Washington State football team, will be sidelined for at least six weeks after a hernia operation.
The sophomore wide receiver discovered the injury last week and had surgery Monday. He is expected to be sidelined six-to-eight weeks, meaning he would miss at least the first four games of the season.
Anderson played in all 12 games as a freshman, catching 12 passes for 372 yards.
As a member of the WSU track team, he won the NCAA 400 meter hurdles in a school record 48.69 seconds this year.
