Michigan LB Mario Ojemudia (Achilles) out for season

Tuesday October 6th, 2015

Michigan linebacker Mario Ojemudia is out for the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury, head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Monday.

The senior was helped off the field by teammates Saturday during the second half of his team's eventual 28–0 win against the Maryland Terrapins.

At the time of his injury, Ojemudia was Michigan's third-best tackler this season with 19, and was second on the team with six tackles for loss and two sacks.

Ojemudia finishes his college career with 82 tackles and eight sacks for the Wolverines. 

With Ojemudia sidelined, Michigan will use senior Royce Jenkins-Stone as his replacement, as well as sophomore Lawrence Marshall.

The No. 18 Wolverines (4–1) will host the No. 13 Northwestern Wildcats (5–0) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
