R ising sophomore tight end Jake Butt has suffered a torn ACL during winter condition- ing and will be out indefinitely, Michigan announced Feb. 13. "Jake's done a tremendous job since he's been here," head coach Brady Hoke said. "He's worked extremely hard and gained a lot of weight to become the com- plete tight end he wants to be. I think he showed flashes of that towards the end of last season. "This is a tough break, but be- cause of his work ethic and at- titude, the kind of young man he is, we know he will be back as soon as he can and as strong as ever." The 6-6, 237-pound Butt started nine games in 2013, ranking third on the team in catches (20) and yards (235). He also had two touchdowns. He had a season- high five grabs for 85 yards and a score against Ohio State, and had evolved into a key offensive player for the Wolverines.
