Just prior to halftime during Michigan‘s come-from-behind win over Illinois two Saturdays ago, Wolverines RB Blake Corum suffered an injury that ended up knocking him out of the game (he did attempt to play in the second half but could not stay in the game). A week later, Corum suited up against Ohio State but, unfortunately, he missed almost all of the game, as he was clearly in pain because of his injured knee. Earlier this week, news broke that Corum will miss the remainder of the 2022 season and that he would have surgery on his knee. Earlier this morning, Corum took to Twitter to make an announcement.
What did Blake Corum tweet out on Saturday?
Within the past hour, Corum took to Twitter to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers, and to announce that his surgery was a success.
“Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers, surgery was a success!” Corum Tweeted. “I believe God does everything for a reason and this is just a obstacle I have to overcome along my journey. Even though I won’t be at game today I will be there in spirit and best believe my guys are ready.”
The No. 2 Michigan Wolverines will take on Purdue on Saturday night in the Big Ten Championship. They will then find out on Sunday where they will be seeded in the College Football Playoff. (They will almost certainly make it in regardless of what happens tonight)
