The Michigan football team announced on Wednesday that sophomore wide receiver Amara Darboh will miss the entire 2013 season with a foot injury that will require surgery.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said on Tuesday that Darboh was shaken up a bit in a scrimmage over the weekend, but didn't dicslose how long the sophomore would be out. The 6-foot-2 Darboh was expected to start alongside redshirt senior Jeremy Gallon — who is 5-foot-8 — as a vertical, down the field receiver. The injury will give redshirt freshman Jehu Chesson and senior Joe Reynolds bigger roles, but it's unclear as of today who would start between those two players.
"I love Amara, and just hate it for him, how hard he worked through the offseason and fall camp to earn a starting role," Hoke said in a statement. "We'll rally around him like a family does and help him get through this difficult time."
This is the first major injury out of the Wolverines' summer camp, 10 days until the season opener against Central Michigan.
