Jake Rudock's status updated for bowl game
There was a concern that Jake Rudock’s Michigan career came to an end in crushing fashion.
When his high school teammate, Joey Bosa, got a clean shot rushing off the edge, it wasn’t pretty. Understandably, the hit sidelined Rudock for the rest of Saturday’s game against Ohio State.
Jim Harbaugh said after Saturday’s game that he didn’t know whether or not Rudock would be available for Michigan’s bowl after he appeared to have suffered an AC joint injury.
But ESPN’s Dan Murphy reported that it was only a sprain to his non-throwing shoulder, which means Rudock would be in favorable position to start in Michigan’s bowl game.
The Iowa transfer suffered a similar injury against Minnesota, which sidelined him for the rest of the game. After that hit, however, Rudock delivered his three best games with the Wolverines.
He finished the regular season as the most accurate quarterback in the B1G with 17 touchdown passes.
Michigan will likely end up in Rudock’s home state of Florida playing in either the Citrus Bowl or the Outback Bowl.
