Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson to have surgery on broken leg

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson will be out of the lineup against No. 13 Wisconsin and likely for the rest of the season.

Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that Hutchinson needs surgery after breaking his leg at Indiana.

The 6-foot-6, 268-pound junior was hurt in the 38-21 loss to the Hoosiers. Hutchinson led linemen with eight tackles against Minnesota and seven tackles against Michigan State. Last season, he was a third-team, All-Big Ten player.

Michigan (1-2) hosts the Badgers (1-0) on Saturday after Wisconsin canceled its previous two games because players and staff members have tested positive for COVID-19. The Wolverines, who started the season No. 16 in the AP Top 25, are unranked for the first time since the end of the 2017 season.
