UM’s Grant Newsome injured, will need surgery
Ann Arbor – Michigan left tackle Grant Newsome will require surgery for what appeared to be an injury to his right leg during the Wisconsin game on Saturday.
Newsome, a sophomore and first-year starter, was injured early in the second quarter. With his teammates around him on the field while the athletic trainers assessed the injury, he refused to ride a cart to the locker room. Newsome walked toward the Michigan Stadium tunnel with several members of the training staff.
“It doesn’t look good,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. “He was blocking on the edge and what he told me, he got cut right at his knee. I don’t know if it was a helmet or what it was. I think a surgical procedure will be needed.”
Juwann Bushell-Beatty replaced Newsome.
It is the second major injury for the Wolverines in two weeks. Fifth-year senior cornerback Jeremy Clark suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Big Ten opener against Penn State last week.
Also, freshman kicker Quinn Nordin is “working through” an injury Harbaugh said.
