Maryland wide receiver Tyrek Cheeseboro, defensive back Matt Robinson, defensive lineman Isaiah Ross and linebacker Kenny Tate have been approved for medical hardship waivers, the school announced today.

“It was great news to hear that each of them gained another year,” Terps coach Randy Edsall said in a news release. “We’re looking forward to having all four of these young men healthy for 2012.”

The decision was relayed to Maryland by the Atlantic Coast Conference office today.

Cheeseboro, a Milford Mill graduate, appeared in three games this season on special teams. He will have four years of eligibility remaining.

Robinson, an Atholton graduate, started the first three games at safety before suffering season-ending shoulder injury. Robinson will have three years left to play for the Terps.

Ross, who was a starter at defensive end, was knocked out of the Terps' season-opening win over Miami. He will have two years of eligibilty remaining.

Tate, a 2010 first-team All-ACC pick at safety, started four games at the Star linebacker position this fall. He missed the final eight games of the 2011 season. Tate will have one more year at Maryland.
