Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey came into the game late in the second quarter against Wisconsin after Shea Patterson suffered some sort of injury.
When the second half started, it was still McCaffrey out there for the Wolverines. Things were up and down for McCaffrey during his time on the field, due in large part to the pass-protection not holding up. However, McCaffrey was able to lead the team down the field into the red-zone to put them in a position to get their first points of the game.
That’s when on a run by McCaffrey he was absolutely demolished on a egregious hit that was ruled targeting.

McCaffrey was able to get up and go to the sideline where he was evaluated further, but Shea Patterson came back into the game for Michigan.
At Jim Harbaugh’s post-game presser, he said that McCaffrey suffered a concussion on the play.

The severity of the concussion is unknown at this time and it remains to be seen if this will keep McCaffrey off the field next week against Rutgers, and beyond. On the day McCaffrey was 3-of-8 for 40 yards while also rushing for 21 yards.
McCaffrey was Michigan’s leading rusher against Wisconsin.
