Michigan football might have lost one of its best players in Ronnie Bell to a serious injury on Saturday afternoon.
Bell exited the field during the first half of the Michigan-Western Michigan game on Saturday afternoon. He couldn’t put weight on one his legs and had to be assisted off the field. The talented wide receiver was eventually carted off the field.
So what happened? The injury appeared to occur during a punt return. During the play, Bell showed off his elusiveness and explosiveness before taking a hard hit from a Western Michigan defender. He then immediately grabbed at his knee area upon hitting the turf.
Take a look.

It’s tough to tell what actually happened during the punt return, but it certainly doesn’t look good.
Unfortunately, Bell was seen in a wheelchair in the Michigan tunnel later on in the game.

Ronnie Bell is one of Michigan’s most explosive players. He was due for a breakout season. In his first three years in Ann Arbor, Bell had 82 catches for 1,304 yards and four touchdowns. His status will be a major talking point moving forward.
Michigan, meanwhile, got off to a good start to the 2021 season on Saturday. The Wolverines defense came up strong, holding the Broncos to just seven points in the first half. The Michigan offense put up 27 points during that same span.
