A hit to Michigan’s depth along the d-line.

The Michigan Wolverines will be without a piece of their rotation along the defensive line for their Citrus Bowl matchup versus Alabama.

A team spokesman said on Sunday that defensive lineman Michael Dwumfour underwent “medical procedure that prevented him from traveling and participating in the bowl game.”

Currently, it’s unknown what the procedure was or the injury is.

Look for Michigan to turn to Chris Hinton to fill Dwumfour’s shoes, with Mazi Smith and Jess Speight potentially receiving some playing time as well. Earlier in the month head coach Jim Harbaugh noted that defensive lineman Carlo Kemp was working through some things, so the depth along the d-line for Michigan isn’t 100%.

Dwumfour joins running back Christian Turner as players who have officially been ruled out for the Citrus Bowl. In ten games this season the 6-foot-2, 282-pound Dwumfour had nine tackles and a half-sack.
