Michigan makes decision about JJ McCarthy’s injury treatment plan

JJ McCarthy gets ready to throw

Michigan has a plan in mind for how they will treat JJ McCarthy’s arm injury.

McCarthy has some lingering arm soreness from last season, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday. The plan is for McCarthy to be shut down and rest his throwing arm. He will avoid surgery. But McCarthy is still practicing with the team.

McCarthy will be a sophomore in the fall. As a freshman, he served as a backup to Cade McNamara on the 12-2 Wolverines.

McCarthy saw action in 11 games, often in specific run packages. He went 34/59 (57.6 percent) for 516 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions as a passer. He rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns.

McNamara is entering his senior season in the fall, so McCarthy still will have a few seasons ahead where he will have a chance to be the starter.
