Donovan Peoples-Jones, Michael Dwumfour face long-term injury concerns

This doesn’t sound good for the Wolverines

NCAA Football: Western Michigan at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Some really bad news was shared by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh on Wednesday morning, telling the media that wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones and defensive lineman Michael Dwumfour have serious injuries.

“By all indications, they have more serious injuries than we previously thought,” Harbaugh said. “Concern is that it’s more serious. Can they get back to their previous form and level?”

Harbaugh noted that both players haven’t practiced all spring and said that both players “can’t do much at all” and that the injuries could be of the season-ending variety.

According to Harbaugh, Peoples-Jones has a soft tissue injury, while Dwumfour has a torn plantar fascia.

This would be a big blow to both sides of the football for Michigan, as Peoples-Jones would undoubtedly have been the top receiving target, and Dwumfour was really coming into his own as a force along the defensive line.

We’ll update this situation as more information becomes available.
