      Torn achilles could impact Whitmer alums NFL draft status

      Former Michigan tight end and Whitmer alum, has a torn Achilles tendon.

      Whitmer alum, Kevin Koger was in a walking boot at the Michigan spring game just over a week ago.

      On Monday, we learned why.

      Koger has a torn Achilles tendon and underwent surgery in the last week of March, after tearing it during pre-draft training.

      The recovery time on a torn achilles could take anywhere from 6 months on average to 8 months to be in NFL shape.

      The former University of Michigan tight end did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine but was projected by some prognosticators to be a late round pick in this year's NFL draft.
