McNamara, making his first career start, was tackled on a scramble on second-and-goal and landed on his right shoulder while bearing the weight of two defenders. He stayed in the game and handed the ball off on third-and-goal, then received immediate medical attention upon leaving the field before entering the locker room for further examination.
Backup quarterback Joe Milton began warming up on the sidelines as McNamara received medical attention. Milton entered the game for the team's next drive.
While Milton was in the game, McNamara returned to the sideline. Then on U-M's next drive, McNamara re-entered the lineup.
