Michigan O-lineman out for the season with fractured tibia

MICHIGAN-Wolverines-LOGO

Michigan’s tough luck with preseason camp injuries isn’t getting any better.

The most significant injury for the Wolverines thus far has been Roy Roundtree‘s knee. The receiver had arthroscopic knee surgery, but should be recovered in time for the season-opening game. Last week, defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins suffered a neck injury that looked far more serious than it actually was.

Unfortunately for U-M’s O-line, though, the leg injury to guard Chris Bryant is as bad as it sounds. A fractured tibia will keep the him out for the season. Additionally, linebacker Kaleb Ringer will redshirt following season-ending knee surgery.

Neither was expected to play as big a role as Roundtree or Pipkins this season, but it does put a slight dent in each position’s depth.

Ringer was a three-star member of Michigan’s 2012 class.

    Hate to hear this. I sometimes wonder if there are more injured players these days, or just more reporting and ways to read the reports. I would prefer both teams where full strength for the opener. But, I also know neither team will issue any excuses. Best of luck to these kids and can not wait for the kickoff.

    Agreed.

    But… what matters most is that which is accomplished in the face of adversity, not in its absence.

    Go Blue!

    I HATE injuries of any kind. Do hope all the players stay healthy and there are no injuries during the game. I know it is a part of it but I just HATE them for the kids. They work so hard to stay fit and then an injury just brings them down.
