Grant Newsome Was Minutes Away From Having His Right Leg Amputated

Grant explains how close he was from getting his leg amputated. Luckily, he is on the road to recovery.

Grant Newsome suffered a horrible leg injury last season against Wisconsin, which required six surgeries since then and is expected to miss the entire 2017 season. What many didn’t know is how close he was to losing his leg, and it was shockingly close. He was grateful the doctors recognized the severity of the situation to get him into surgery that night.

Angelique Chengelis with the Detroit News posted a video with Grant talking about his injury and recovery while following the team on their Italy trip.

He has not been able to particiapte in all the events during the Italy trip, but posted his view from today while the team got in some paintball.

This scary injury and situation could have been much worse, but glad he’s on the road to recovery.
