Michigan redshirt junior T Grant Newsome (knee) is hopeful that he will be able to play this coming season, but said that it will be up to doctors.
Newsome (6'7/318) sustained a dislocated knee in October of 2016 and has been put through rehab hellfire in the intervening year-plus. Doctors had some initial fear that he might end up losing his right leg. He would ultimately undergo six surgical procedures in the span of 40 days. Newsome subsequently took a medical redshirt for the 2017 season. He's been going through conditioning work with the team this winter, but will need medical clearance if he's to participate in spring practice (starting March 22). The tackle acknowledged that it's not out of the realm of possibility that doctors recommend retirement. Expect an update on Newsome's status as we draw closer to spring practice. Feb 9 - 11:09 AM
