Michigan pass rusher suffers injury at Pro Day, reportedly went down clutching leg
Michigan held its Pro Day on Friday, and an unfortunate development happened to one of the top NFL talents from a pass rushing standpoint suffered an injury.
Jeffri Chadiha, an NFL.com senior columnist, reported that “Edge rusher David Ojabo sustained injury in pass rush drill. Went down clutching left leg. Not sure if ankle or leg but he had to helped off field.”
Ojabo is projected to be a first-round pick by many after he made 11 sacks during Michigan’s run to the College Football Playoff and Orange Bowl against Georgia. This now becomes one of the most watched injuries leading up to the NFL Draft, as others, like Ole Miss QB Matt Corral recovering from a Sugar Bowl leg injury is another one in the mix.
