PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Michigan left tackle Juwann-Bushell Beatty left the field with an injury to his right knee on Michigan’s second play of the game Saturday against Rutgers.
Bushell-Beatty had replaced Grant Newsome at left tackle in Michigan’s first road game. Newsome is out for the season following an unspecified injury to his knee during last week’s 14-7 win against No. 11 Wisconsin. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Newsome’ s injury is not career-ending.
With the loss of Bushell-Beatty, Michigan again juggled its offensive line, moving Mason Cole from center to left tackle and elevating Patrick Kugler to center.
