Key Michigan player suffers knee injury, could miss extended time

According to reports, Michigan offensive lineman Andrew Stueber will miss at least the start of the season and potentially more after suffering a knee injury.

From 97.1 The Ticket:

Andrew Stueber, who has been competing with Jalen Mayfield for the starting job at right tackle since the start of spring workouts, suffered a knee injury in practice Tuesday and will be out for at least the start of the season, according to a source close with the team.

It’s possible he could miss significant time, though the severity of the injury remains to be seen. 

Stueber, a redshirt sophomore, appeared to have a slight edge over the redshirt freshman Mayfield. He saw action in all 13 games last season, including starts against Ohio State and in the Peach Bowl, and was the starter at right tackle in this year’s spring game. 

This is certainly some unfortunate news for the University of Michigan football program and the fans.
