Michigan QB Shea Patterson suffers apparent leg injury
The Michigan Wolverines had a brutal day in Columbus on Saturday, but the worst may have come in the fourth quarter with a potentially serious injury.
Wolverine quarterback Shea Patterson suffered what appeared to be an injury to his right leg after it got caught in the turf on a fourth quarter tackle.
Patterson stayed down for several moments and was surrounded by his teammates, but he was able to walk off under his own power.

According to Fox Sports reporter Jenny Taft, Patterson was fitted for a brace and was likely to return to the game, so the injury turned out to be less serious than it initially looked.
The Patterson injury wasn’t even the first big one Michigan suffered on the day. They were also well on track to losing the game, making things even worse.
