One of Michigan’s top playmakers should be available when the Wolverines open up the season against Alabama in Dallas, but knee surgery will make things a bit tight leading up to the game.
Brady Hoke announced Sunday after practice that receiver Roy Roundtree underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday and will miss the next two weeks of preseason camp.
“He had a little cartilage that he needed cleaned up, we expect him back in two weeks,” Hoke said. “Everything went great, he feels great.”
Hoke said Roundtree, who had 19 catches for 355 yards last season, injured the knee without contact during practice. The surgery and recovery time sounds like standard operating procedure. That’s good for Michigan; he’ll be needed against the Tide.
