The Michigan football team announced that sophomore offensive lineman Kyle Bosch has taken a leave of absence indefinitely from the program.

“Kyle Bosch has taken a leave of absence for an undetermined amount of time for personal reasons,” said coach Brady Hoke in a statement. “We ask that his privacy be respected at this time. We wish him the best and look forward to his return.”

Bosch was one of several linemen competing for a starting position on an inexperienced offensive line. His lone start came last season against Michigan State, when the Wolverines rushed for minus-48 yards.

He played in five games last season and saw time as a backup guard in the Wolverines’ win over Appalachian State on Saturday.

Bosch was competing at both guard spots, but was listed behind sophomore Erik Magnuson at left guard and senior Joey Burzynski at right guard.

Sophomore Kyle Kalis would move into the second on the depth chart automatically.
