Michigan LT Grant Newsome out for season with injury

-

The Michigan Wolverines have been bitten by the injury bug. On Monday, head coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed starting left tackle Grant Newsome will miss the remainder of the 2016 college football season with a “serious knee injury.”

Newsome suffered the injury during last weekend’s win over Wisconsin.

Harbaugh confirmed the severity of Newsome’s knee injury when speaking to the media at his weekly press conference.

Juwann Bushell-Beatty replaced Newsome after he went down on Saturday, and he is expected to fill in as the starting left tackle moving forward. Hopefully he can do a good job protecting the blind side of Wilton Speight, who has been consistently improving as the season goes on.

Michigan returns to action this weekend with its first road trip of the year as the Wolverines face Rutgers at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
