Well, this isn't the kind of news that will warm the hearts and minds of the Maize 'N Blue fanbase. Reports are indicating expected major contributor and former star recruit, Amara Darboh is out for the season with a foot injury.
Big loss for @umichfootball WR Amara Darboh will miss season with foot injury.— Matt Hayes (@Matt_HayesSN) August 21, 2013
Kind of important to have your feet good to go when playing a position like wide receiver, huh?
Darboh appeared to have suffered the injury during the final scrimmage of fall camp on Saturday and the serious nature of this injury wasn't found out until this morning.
It appeared that Darboh was in line for a starting wide receiver spot and was at the very least the third wide receiver on a group that was lacking true star power or any real depth to it. Clearly this is a major blow to the team.
"I love Amara, and just hate it for him, how hard he worked through the offseason and fall camp to earn a starting role," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said in a release from Michigan. "We'll rally around him like a family does and help him get through this difficult time."
Darboh, a sophomore, has yet to record any stats in his career in the Maize 'N Blue and luckily for him he does have a redshirt season available to him to help take care of this injury.
Michigan fans and Big Ten fans should look to Joe Reynolds, Jeremy Gallon, and redshirt freshman Jeshu Chesson to pick up the slack in Darboh's absence.
