There was a scary moment for Michigan during Friday’s morning practice. Thankfully, though, everything turned out okay.
It didn’t appear that way at first. Freshman defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins had to be hospitalized for precautionary reasons and evaluation after injuring his neck during drills. An ambulance was called to U-M’s practice facility at just before 9 a.m. ET, and for a brief time, there wasn’t a lot of information about Pipkins’ condition.
However, coach Brady Hoke (pictured) said Pipkins had movement in all of his extremities. Neck/head injuries are serious business, so it’s good to hear Pipkins will be okay.
The freshman is expected to contribute along the Wolverines’ defensive line this season.
