The Michigan Wolverines’ starting cornerback Troy Woolfolk was forced to leave the Western Michigan game early due to a lower body injury. Woolfolk was carted off the field and into the tunnel after being tended to on the sidelines by the team trainers.
Woolfolk was still in his uniform after halftime, but he walked out of the locker room gingerly and accompanied by a trainer, separate from the rest of his team. Woolfolk tested the injury on the field shortly before the third quarter began, but decided he couldn’t give it a go and was replaced by fellow senior cornerback J.T. Floyd.
Woolfolk was the second defensive starter lost today, as sophomore linebacker Cam Gordon did not dress due to a back injury.
As you know, Woolfolk missed the entire 2010 season with a dislocated ankle and broken fibula. Hopefully, for the Woolfolk’s and the Wolverines’ sake, this injury is not related or serious.
