Michigan freshman defensive end Chris Wormley tears ACL
Michigan freshman defensive end Chris Wormley has torn an ACL, a program spokesman confirmed Tuesday night.
Recovery time for that injury typically takes several months, which means Wormley likely is lost for the season.
GoBlueWolverine.com's Sam Webb first reported the injury on Twitter.
Wormley is a 6-foot-4, 279-pound native of Toledo, Ohio. He attended Whitmer High School, which also produced former Michigan tight end and captain Kevin Koger.
He was not expected to play a significant role on defense this year.
Michigan now has sustained two major injuries in camp, after coach Brady Hoke revealed over the weekend that starting receiver Roy Roundtree had arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday. He is not expected to rejoin the team until the week of the season opener against Alabama.
