Former Michigan TE Jake Butt placed on IR by Broncos

When former Michigan great Jake Butt tore his ACL in the 2016 Orange Bowl, there were questions about whether the tight end would be healthy for his rookie season in the NFL.

The ACL injury didn’t prevent Butt from being drafted, though, as the Denver Broncos chose him in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Unfortunately for Butt, he will have to wait until the 2018 NFL season to make his NFL debut, as the Broncos placed him on the injured reserve list on Monday.

After the news broke about him being placed on the IR, Butt took to Twitter to post a message for his fans.

Butt was a fan favorite at Michigan, where he spent four seasons with the Wolverines. In 43 total games across those four years with Michigan, Butt had 138 receptions for 1,646 yards and 11 touchdowns.
