WSU receiver Anderson out 6-8 weeks

PULLMAN -- Washington State University announced this afternoon that sophomore wide receiver Jeshua Anderson underwent surgery for a hernia Monday.

According to the WSU medical staff, the surgery went as planned. Anderson’s recovery time is expected to be between six and eight weeks.

Anderson, a record-setting track star in the hurdles, averaged a remarkable 31 yards per catch in 12 receptions last season as a freshman. The Cougars begin their season Aug. 30 when they play host to Oklahoma State in the Cougar Gridiron Classic at Qwest Field in Seattle.
