The Toledo Blade's new Michigan beat writer Rachel Lenzi reports the unfortunate news.
Former Whitmer and Michigan football standout Kevin Koger underwent surgery to repair a partially torn left Achilles tendon, Koger's agent said today.
Rick Smith of Priority Sports and Entertainment in Chicago, said Koger, who will graduate from Michigan on Saturday with a degree in sport management, underwent surgery on March 27, five days after suffering the injury during training.
Smith would not comment on Koger's future in the NFL, other than to say, "He will be fine, and he will play in the NFL."
That's some seriously unfortunate news for Koger. Here's hoping his recovery goes smoothly.
