AP Photo Michigan's QB depth just took a huge blow. Via UM media relations... Michigan Quarterback Russell Bellomy Out Indefinitely with Torn ACLANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan football junior/sophomore quarterback Russell Bellomy (Arlington, Texas/Martin) is out indefinitely with a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in last Friday's practice, the team announced today (Monday, April 1)."It's unfortunate, especially for a kid who battled through a tough injury last season and was having a really good spring," said Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke.  "We'll continue to support Russell and look forward to having him back on the field." Much like Jake Ryan's, its all a crap shoot when it comes to recovery time. ACL's are tricky, they heal very slowly...much slower then a bone break. Assume the worst...out probably a year. So what does this mean? Well, it means incoming freshman 5-star Shane Morris is the backup for sure now. And he better stay healthy. The spring roster also lists RS SO Alex Swieca, RS FR Brian Cleary and RS FR Shaun Austin as QBs. window.dctile = Number(window.dctile) + 1 || 1; window.dc_ord = Number(window.dc_ord) || Math.floor(Math.random() * 1E10); if (dctile==1) {var vdcopt = 'ist';} else {vdcopt = '';} if (17>dctile) document.write('\n');

Chad Ford: Mitch McGary could be first-round pick
