Not sure why all our injuries seem to focus so heavily on our top 10-12 players every year. Seems like Blake had a surgery per Mlive. Since it was not done immediately after 2013 season one has to assume the team doctors thought it would heal on its own over time but did not.
Michigan junior cornerback Blake Countess recently underwent a surgical procedure to repair a core injury suffered during the 2013 season, according to a team spokesman. Countess, a 5-foot-10, 183-pounder from Owings Mills, Md., is expected to make a fully recovery, and is expected to be back at 100 percent for fall camp this August.
