The Michigan offensive line had a real good day in the Wolverines' season-opening win over Appalachian State. But now it's getting some bad news.

Sophomore right guard Kyle Bosch is taking an indefinite leave of absence for personal reasons, the team announced Wednesday.

“Kyle Bosch has taken a leave of absence for an undetermined amount of time for personal reasons," head coach Brady Hoke said in a release. "We ask that his privacy be respected at this time. We wish him the best and look forward to his return.”

Bosh played as a backup at right guard against Appalachian State and is listed as a co-No. 1 at the position along with senior Joey Burzynski.

The win in the opener came against easy competition, but it figured to be a step in the right direction for an offensive line that struggled mightily last season. Michigan had a huge offensive day, with the running game specifically impressing. Sophomore running backs Derrick Green and De'Veon Smith each ran for more than 100 runs.

Bosch is a Chicago-area native, calling St. Charles his hometown, and attended St. Francis High School.
