Maryland sophomore guard Seth Allen sustained a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and will miss eight to 10 weeks, coach Mark Turgeon said Wednesday.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland sophomore guard Seth Allen has a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and will miss eight to 10 weeks.

Allen was set to start at the point, but coach Mark Turgeon told ESPN.com that the role will fall to Dez Wells, with highly touted freshman Roddy Peters serving as the backup point guard.

"We are devastated for Seth," Turgeon said in a statement Wednesday. "He was playing at a very high level throughout the summer and fall and was poised to have an excellent start to the season."

The 6-foot-1 Allen, who suffered the injury at the end of Tuesday's practice when he landed awkwardly on the foot, had begun to make the transition last season from shooting guard to the point guard position. He averaged 7.8 points and 2.3 assists a year ago as a freshman.
