Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh told the Free Press that this will be a long rehab for Ojemudia:
“Looks like it is (long-term),” U-M coach Jim Harbaugh said. “Looks like it will be Achilles. That is a hard, tough rehab type of injury. I’ve got some experience with that one. Not personally, but I’ve seen it. It’s a tough injury. Surgery and then you just can’t do anything. Can’t try to come back from that too early. But once you do rehab that, it comes back solid. The first time that’s happened to him. It’s the kind of injury you can come back successfully from it. But it’s also a hard and tough rehab.”
Harbaugh also confirmed that Ojemudia would not be eligible for a medical redshirt, thus ending his career at Michigan.
