WR Amara Darboh to Miss Season With A Foot Injury

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan loses its front runner for the WR2 position.

Michigan has had some bad luck recently losing expected starters very early in the year.  This continues that trend, and  really hurts the offense that was looking for play makers.

Darboh had come on recently as perhaps Michigan's best and most capable non-Gallon wide receiver.  He is a big bodied (6'2, 210 lbs.) sophomore with good hands and athleticism.  Michigan was looking to rely heavily on him while redshirting most if not all of the three incoming freshmen and working RS-Fr. Jehu Chesson into the lineup as well.

The loss of Darboh is going to hurt WR depth and probably push Michigan to use one of its freshmen wide outs in a reserve role.  He does still have a redshirt year to use, so this won't affect his eligibility going forward, but losing someone who was thought to be a major contributor coming into the season is going to hurt Michigan's offense.

The onus is going to fall on Jehu Chesson, a lithe, speedy outside receiver that redshirted a year ago to add weight.

Hopefully Darboh has a speedy and full recovery.  Good luck, young man.
