The captain of Michigan football has surgery.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan On Saturday, there was a terrifying scene in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan RG Zak Zinter was blocking during the second half against Ohio State when it looked like a player rolled up underneath him and took the senior down.

Zinter appeared to be in pain following the play, and teammates were pleading with the medical personnel to come get him. When the doctors had finished treating him, they wheeled a cart out and carried Zinter off.

Late on Saturday, Zinter shared a picture of himself on X (Twitter) stating that his surgery went well. Zinter is pictured there with his parents and coach Jim Harbaugh.

Before Zinter shared the news of the successful surgery, Zinter’s mother announced on Instagram that her son was scheduled for surgery and asked for prayers. Zinter reportedly broke both his tibia and fibula, according to her post.

Zinter, a senior, is arguably the best guard in football and one of the best offensive linemen in all of collegiate football. Zinter has been in the first round of multiple mock drafts and has received first-round grades.

He was a two-time member of the Big Ten All-Star team and was a key component of the offensive lines that won the Joe Moore Award in 2021 and 2022. Zinter is 3-0 against rival Ohio State to end his Michigan career, assuming he’s headed to the NFL the following season.
