Blake Corum injured vs. Illinois

A horrible occurrence for Michigan and Corum.

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

In the second quarter of Michigan’s home game against Illinois, a key contributor went down for the Wolverines.

Heisman contending running back Blake Corum was hit hard and immediately grabbed his left knee. Corum fumbled the ball on the play and Illinois recovered the ball.

Corum was down on the field for at least a couple of minutes, with trainers stretching his leg and knee out. Corum was eventually able to get up and walk with a slight limp to the locker room without assistance.

Hopefully, this is a case of the injury not being as bad as it looked. Any time a player immediately grabs their knee is highly concerning, especially a player who’s as important to the team as Corum.

Before heading to the locker room Corum rushed for 103 yards and one touchdown.

This is a developing story.
