A disappointing end to a great career.

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan Football’s Mackey Award-winning tight end Jake Butt will go down as one of the better players in program history, but he leaves the program on a sour note after the Orange Bowl.

Butt left the game early in the game with a knee injury, which is featured to be a torn ACL or MCL, head coach Jim Harbaugh said after the game.

There is certainly an NFL future in store for the Wolverines’ tight end, but his stock likely takes a bit of a blow. This is the second big-time knee injury that he has suffered in his college career.

Butt finished with 43 catches for 518 yards and four touchdowns in his senior season at Michigan.
