Michigan edge rusher David Ojabo sustained an apparent left leg injury during his pro day workout on Friday in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Ojabo, who is regarded as a potential first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, clutched his leg during a pass-rush drill and needed assistance to exit the field.

The severity of the injury was not immediately known.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound junior registered 11 sacks and five forced fumbles this season as the Wolverines advanced to the College Football Playoff.

Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Ojabo didn’t start playing football until his junior year of high school after moving to the United States.

He did not appear in any games for Michigan as a freshman in 2019 and registered just one tackle in six games in 2020.
