Michigan Wolverines sophomore defensive tackle Bryan Mone has broken his ankle and will be out for an extended period of time, perhaps the entire season. Mark Synder of the Detroit Free-Press reported the story of Mone’s injury, which was first broken by Andrew Gorringe of Scout.com
To add insult to injury Mone, a Salt Lake City native, is officially out for the team’s season opener against Utah in his home city on September 3. As of now, he is not making the trip due to the injury, which was suffered during practice.
This leaves Michigan with a hole on the defensive line, as Mone was expected to rotate with teammates Ryan Glasgow and Maurice Hurst. Of that potential three-headed monster, Mone was the largest and strongest at 6-foot-4, 325 pounds. In 12 games as a reserve last year, he had nine tackles and a fumble recovery.
Campus Sports wishes Mone a speedy recovery in hopes that he gets back on the field soon.
