Jim Harbaugh updates health of QB J.J. McCarthy

Following the 2021 season, one that saw the Michigan Wolverines win the Big Ten Championship and advance to the College Football Playoffs, a report surfaced that QB J.J. McCarthy had an injured shoulder and he was being shut down from throwing the football.

On Thursday, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh was speaking at an event and he told The Michigan Insider that McCarthy is back to throwing regularly.

From The Michigan Insider:

Speaking to TMI on Wednesday night at a philanthropic event, Harbaugh said the rising sophomore quarterback continues to throw the ball pain-free in summer workouts. McCarthy is throwing regularly — nearly every day — and all indications point to him being a full participant in fall camp.

McCarthy is expected to compete with Cade McNamara to be Michigan’s starting QB in 2022 but regardless of who wins the job, you can expect to see plenty from both quarterbacks.

During his freshman season, McCarthy completed 34 of 59 passes for 519 yards and five touchdowns. He also added 124 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Nation, who do you think should be Michigan’s starting QB in 2022?
