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.
