Michigan WR Darboh Out For Season

Starting wide receiver for Michigan, sophomore Amara Darboh, will be out for the entire season after having surgery on a foot injury. 
U-M coach Brady Hoke hinted on Tuesday that Darboh might be out for a while after getting injured in Saturday's scrimmage. He confirmed this news Wednesday in a released statement.
"I love Amara, and just hate it for him, how hard he worked through the off-season and fall camp to earn a starting role," Hoke said. "We'll rally around him like a family does and help him get through this difficult time."

Darboh was expected to be Michigan's No. 2 receiver and be a large target opposite Jeremy Gallon this season. During training camps he had become a consistent target for quarterback Devin Gardner. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound native of Des Moines, IA played mostly on special teams during his freshman year. He has good speed for a larger receiver. 
Offensive coordinator Al Borges was disappointed when he found out Darboh would be out for the entire season. "Fortunately we have some pretty good kids who can fill in, but I feel worse for him than anybody," Borges said. "The kid had an excellent spring ball and capped it off with a fabulous two a days, he was playing good. I feel bad because I feel this was going to be an almost coming out season for him. He's got a redshirt, so I guess there is a silver lining."

Senior receiver Joe Reynolds said that in Darboh's absence, Gallon and redshirt freshman Jehu Chesson had stepped up their games.
