Report: Michigan QB JJ McCarthy dealing with injury
Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy is reportedly dealing with an injury this spring.
Angelique S. Chengelis of The Detroit News writes that McCarthy has been limited in spring practice and will continue to rest his throwing shoulder (right) for at least the next 2 months. The good news is that McCarthy does not need surgery, per Chengelis, who reports that it has been a nagging injury since before U-M’s appearance in the College Football Playoff. Michigan’s reported plan is rest and rehab for the sophomore QB, a former 5-star recruit on the 247Sports Composite.
As a freshman, McCarthy appeared in 11 games during the 2021 campaign, going 34-for-59 passing for 516 yards with 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. In the Orange Bowl loss to Georgia, McCarthy was 7-for-17 passing for 131 yards and a TD. As a runner, McCarthy carried the ball 27 times for 124 yards and 2 TDs last season.
Michigan began spring practice in February before taking off for U-M’s spring break.
