Michigan running back Blake Corum expected to have knee surgery

Date:

Ann Arbor – For most of this season, Michigan’s offense has centered on leading rusher Blake Corum, who worked his way through the defense and built a case to get into the Heisman Trophy talk.

Now the Wolverines, preparing to play in the Big Ten championship, have to switch gears as Corum is expected to undergo knee surgery and play for the rest of the postseason, a source confirmed to The Detroit News. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport was the first to report the news on Thursday.

Michigan running back Blake Corum will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Undefeated Michigan, No. 2 in the College Football Rankings, is the defending Big Ten champion and will face Purdue (8-4) in the title game Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

But the Wolverines will be without Corum, who was named the Big Ten’s Running Back of the Year on Wednesday. The junior suffered an injury to his left knee just before the end of the first half against Illinois on November 19. He returned for one game in the second half and then sat out the rest of the game. He started last week’s game at Ohio State, but left the game limping after his second carry of the game.
