Michigan sophomore TE Jake Butt hopes to return to the field on Sept. 27 against Minnesota.
Butt suffered a torn ACL during winter conditioning, and the Minnesota game is a reasonable goal as it is the team's Big Ten opener. He is currently five and a half months out from the injury to his right knee. Butt and Devin Funchess, who is more of a pure receiving option, would form one of the best position combos in college football. Aug 26 - 11:21 AM

Michigan sophomore-to-be TE Jake Butt will return by the third or fourth game of the 2014 season, according to Michigan coach Brady Hoke.

Butt suffered a torn ACL during winter conditioning last month. "I haven’t really sat down and talked with the doctors, because (Butt) just had (the surgery), but he’ll work hard just like [LB] Jake [Ryan] did," Hoke said. "I would think, though, to really have him back where you’d want him, it probably would be game three or four. So it is similar in some ways to (Ryan), but we’ll just have to see. Everybody heals differently." Michigan opens against Appalachian State on Aug. 30, and then plays at Notre Dame on Sept. 6, hosts Miami of Ohio on Sept. 13 and hosts Utah on Sept. 20.

Michigan sophomore-to-be TE Jake Butt suffered a torn ACL during winter conditioning.

He will obviously miss spring activities. This is a major blow to the team's offense, as Butt's role was likely to grow this season. He and Devin Funchess offer one of the best combinations at tight end in the country, so Funchess could see more targets early in the season.
