Justin Fields suffered an MCL sprain.

Justin Fields suffered an injury scare midway through the third quarter when he went down with an apparent knee injury, but after the game Fields revealed that he was playing banged up from the start.

In his postgame press conference, Fields said he suffered an MCL sprain at the end of last week's win against Penn State, when he went down with an injury on a quarterback rush. Fields re-aggravated that injury against Michigan.

Fields returned to action on the same drive, tossing a 30-yard touchdown pass across his body to Garrett Wilson in the back of the end zone. He said he was not worried he would be unable to continue after re-aggravating the injury, but just went to the sideline to put on a bigger brace on his knee.

“I thought it was a magical moment. I thought it was a Heisman moment,” Ryan Day said of Fields' return. “I’ve never been around a tougher quarterback than that guy."
