Ann Arbor — Franz Wagner has been through this before.
The wait. The mental battle. The frustration. The bumpy road to recovery that comes with being injured and stuck on the sideline.
“I’ve had a lot of injuries. The Wagners, in our history we have a lot of injuries,” Wagner said shaking his head with a wry smile on Thursday. “I had a couple of ankle sprains. I was sidelined for more than a year when I was 12, 13 (years old). I'm familiar with the mindset going into an injury, which is very tough, I think, to stay focused, stay positive through the process.
