Ouch. Never wish injury on anybody. Huge Loss.
"5 foot 8.....what do they want a basketball team?"
Horrible news, dude is a mighty fine football player.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Best of luck to him, and wish him a speedy recovery. You never want to see kids get hurt Rival or not.

Poor kid. He was expected to have a huge season. Here's hoping the kid recovers fully
Damn hate to see these guys get hurt, kid is a hell of a player.
Sucks to see man....really does.
Except he won't be there when we play them.
Tough loss. He is a stud. Like losing the QB on offense. Here's to a speedy recovery.

"Playing here is the closest thing to heaven on earth..." - Brian Rolle
Seems like a great kid, even though he plays for Meeechigan..
How long of a process is surgery, rehab, etc...
Highly doubtful he'd play at all next year. Maybe if they make a bowl game. I'm assuming he'll take a Medical Redshirt though.
Word is he is out for 2013 and will redshirt.........this kid was easily there best defensive player. Huge loss.
in all seriousness get better soon
Yup, he was the anchor. Luckily (for them) LB is their deepest defensive position in terms of talent but there is no replacing his leadership.
This injury could actually cost them a win or maybe even two.
He was/is easily the best player on their defense.
They are saying on the Michigan boards that Ryan's position is pretty thin.
Maybe one of hoax's fifty olinemen he's recruited can play mlb?
time to move some OL's over
Yeah. lol They have LB's, but none with experience at Ryan's position.
I guess Ross and Bolden aren't MLBs - I thought they were. I know Jenkins-Stone was an OLB and I thought Ringer was either/or as was Jones from the year before.
Cam Gordon. He's a senior, Desmond Morgan
They have some depth, but no experience...Time to see if/ what we let go in McCray and Gedeon...

They've got nobody to replace his pass-rushing skills. Mattison is gonna have to move some guys around and find an answer.
Gordon and Morgan wouldn't have beat out Storm Klein last year. That is a gigantic drop off and I thought those talented underclassman would be the go to candidates.
This really is a blow to their whole team.
#5000!!!! Almost failed to notice!

Unfortunately for him, he has already redshirted. I don't think he'd be a candidate for the rare 6th year medical redshirt as he will have played for three years (assuming he comes in ready to roll for his senior year.)
In order to get TWO redshirts you usually have to have played only one year or so. In other words, major injury woes that wiped out virtually your entire career.
