Former Whitmer and Michigan football standout Kevin Koger underwent surgery to repair a partially torn left Achilles tendon, Koger's agent said today.
Rick Smith of Priority Sports and Entertainment in Chicago, said Koger, who will graduate from Michigan on Saturday with a degree in sport management, underwent surgery on March 27, five days after suffering the injury during training. At Michigan's spring game April 14, Koger stood on the sidelines at Michigan Stadium wearing a walking boot on his left leg, and Smith said that Koger's surgeons anticipate a recovery period of six to eight months.
Smith would not comment on Koger's future in the NFL, other than to say, "He will be fine, and he will play in the NFL."
Koger had 23 catches for 244 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games last season at Michigan.
