Michigan DT Bryan Mone likely out for 2015

-

Michigan Wolverines sophomore defensive tackle Bryan Mone is likely out for the 2015 season after suffering a broken leg earlier this summer. The unfortunate news was reported by coach Jim Harbaugh to MLive.com’s Nick Baumgardner, and Harbaugh also announced that junior running back Drake Johnson was questionable for the September 3 season opener against Utah.

Per Harbaugh, Mone’s injury happened on a “freak play” that involved the defense blocking a field goal and star defensive back Jabril Peppers returning it. Mone went to block for him and got his leg rolled up, thus causing the injury.

As a true freshman last year, Mone appeared in five games and had nine tackles with a fumble recovery. In 2015, the plan was for him to rotate with Ryan Glasgow at nose tackle.

In Johnson’s case, he tore his ACL in the regular season finale against Ohio State last year and while he has practiced, Harbaugh said he would be a game-time decision.

But the fact remains. With Mone out for the year, Michigan could be missing a key piece of its defensive line.
