Michigan WR Tarik Black isn’t letting injury stop him from catching passes in practice

Tarik Black was Michigan’s leading wide receiver in a young season when he went down with a foot injury during the Wolverines’ win over Air Force in Week 3.

The injury was later revealed to be a cracked bone in Black’s foot. A timetable for the freshman’s return is still unclear, but he’s doing what he can to practice while keeping his foot immobilized.

Black had 11 catches and 149 receiving yards in three games, and had 5 catches for 55 yards against Air Force before suffering the injury. Senior Grant Perry leads Michigan after Week 6 with 18 catches for 224 yards. Michigan has also lost QB Wilton Speight reportedly for at least four to six more weeks with his own injury.

Some rehab advice from sophomore WR Eddie McDoom:

“Just take your time,” McDoom said. “Get through recovery. You’re a great player. Take your time. Make sure you go to every recovery session. Just make sure you’re in the playbook so when you return, nothing’s behind you, that it’s just as new.”
