Just days before the Michigan Wolverines head to Salt Lake City to take on potential top-25 team Utah in Jim Harbaugh’s first game as coach they have lost a projected starter for the season. Sophomore DT Brian Mone, who was projected to start at nose tackle for the Wolverines, has been diagnosed with a broken bone in his leg and will likely miss the entire 2015 season.

Mone, who played in 12 games last season as a true freshman, was going to help anchor Michigan’s defensive front that helped allow over 22 PPG last season. In Jim Harbaugh’s first season, this does not help his case to turn his alma mater around. According to Harbaugh, the injury is definitely, “long-term” and “it was a freak play” that took Mone’s season. It was actually such a freak play that Harbaugh had never seen it before in his entire football career saying, “I’ve never seen it before in a practice or games.”

According to mlive.com:

After Michigan’s defense blocked a field goal, Mone rolled out and attempted to block for Jabrill Peppers on a return attempt when his leg was rolled up, resulting in a broken bone in his leg.

Tough break (no pun intended) for the young defensive lineman. Let’s hope he can recover quickly and return to the field in 2016.
