Bad news for the Michigan Wolverines before the Sugar Bowl even kicked off -- their starting center David Molk was injured during pre-game warmups and did not play the first series. Redshirt junior Rocko Khoury started in his stead and Michigan went three-and-out after a couple suspect snaps.
The extent of Molk's injury is unknown, but ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe said that Molk was having trouble pushing off during warmups and he is walking with a limp on the sidelines.
Molk was named this year's Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year, is an All-American first teamer, and the recipient of the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded annually to the best center in college football.
We'll keep you posted on this big injury as more info becomes available.
