Surgery ends Toussaint’s season

Unfortunately for both Fitz Toussaint and Michigan, the injury was indeed as bad as it initially looked.

The running back suffered a lower-leg injury on his third carry of the Wolverines’ blowout win over Iowa Saturday.  After being tended to by UM medical personnel for several minutes, Toussaint was fitted with an air cast and taken off the Big House field via a cart.

Head coach Brady Hoke confirmed after the game that Toussaint had been taken to a local hospital and underwent surgery.  While Hoke wouldn’t confirm the specific nature of the injury, the junior suffered what has been reported as a broken left leg.

Suffice to say, Toussaint’s season has come to a premature end because of the injury.

It was heartbreaking to see Fitz in so much pain like that,” quarterback Devin Gardner said according to “Fitz is a really tough guy, and I’ve never seen his face grimacing like that. I pray he’ll be all right. I prayed as soon as I saw him down. I just started to pray and hopefully, he’ll be fine.”

Toussaint will likely finish the season tops among Wolverine running backs in rushing yards (514) and rushing touchdowns (five).

    Not all fans from Ohio……

    Watched the game before OSU-Wisc, and saw the injury. Would have liked to have seen him against the Buckeyes next week.

    Second worst injury (behind Lattimore) to a RB this season.

    I hope Toussaint has a full recovery.

    Go Bucks.

    Hey Djego, kiss my scarlet and grey ass. Fatso Hoke is the most overrated HC in America. Lets go ahead and forget about the recent and not so recent past, tOSU still kicks your ass on Saturday and you know that, bitch!!!

    Michigan hasn’t been very good in road games against ranked teams. I still have a feeling Michigan wins a close one against Ohio. I know Braxton Miller is good, but Robinson and Gardner on the field at the same time? Good luck with that!

    agree, um is very different with d-rob and gardener on the field. an dumbpollack i think the name fits. in canada one would say eh-hole go find a friend to help you spell OH—IO

    Recover well Fitz, we need you.

    @ cleveland and DUMBpollack…This wasn’t a trash talking/competition post. The guy BROKE HIS LEG… how about showing an OUNCE of sportsmanship… or, maybe you have none. The name fits pollack.

    Go FITZ and GO BLUE!

    Never want to see a kid get injured like that – even playing for your arch rival! Best wishes and hopefully you’ll be able to return to the field.
