Maryland’s first injury issue of preseason camp arrived even before the first practice.

It does not appear, though, to be as serious as it could have been.

Sophomore kicker Michael Tart underwent an MRI exam after reporting to camp with a foot injury suffered while working a summer job. And while he did not practice Tuesday, coach Randy Edsall said the MRI did not reveal a tear.

“They’ll just continue to treat him and as soon as he’s able to come back out [he will],” Edsall said. “He can hold right now, but he can’t do any of the kicking right now.”

Tart entered camp as the No. 2 kicker behind senior Nick Ferrara. He played in one game last season, replacing an injured Ferrara in the season finale. He was 2-for-3 on extra points.

Tart was one of two players who spent much of Tuesday’s session on a stationary bike. The other was tight end Daniel Adams, who underwent foot surgery over the summer. Adams is sitting out this season after transferring from New Mexico.
