Michigan senior wide receiver Jehu Chesson has not been able to practice much this offseason because of an injury he suffered during the team’s win in the Citrus Bowl in January. It was not clear exactly what happened except for some kind of knee injury.
Now, everyone knows exactly what kind of injury Chesson suffered, but it is still unclear when he will be back to full health for the upcoming season. He admitted that he suffered a partially torn PCL in the game during Michigan’s preseason media day this weekend, but he did say he feels like he is ready to go.
“I’m ready to go,” Chesson said. “We didn’t set a date or anything. Just go by how you feel and I feel great.”
Chesson aims to be a big part of the Wolverines’ offense this season and he talked about how he feels lucky to even be able to practice this year, giving the nature of his injury.
“It’s frustrating that you can’t practice with your team, but I’m no exception to the rule,” Chesson said. “Everybody that suffers an injury like mine, it takes time.”
In 2015, he recorded 50 catches for 764 yards and nine touchdowns with 155 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Most of his production came late in the season as he recorded over 100 yards in three of their final four games and six of his nine touchdowns in those games as well.
His biggest showing came in a double overtime win over Indiana when he recorded a career high 207 yards and four touchdowns. Hopefully, Jehu Chesson will be just fine when Michigan takes the field on Sept. 3 against Hawaii.
