ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- U-M football sophomore defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins will miss the remainder of the 2013 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in last Saturday's game against Minnesota, the team announced today.
Pipkins had appeared in all five games, totaling seven tackles.
"You hurt for Ondre, and I really do because I coach him and he's in my meeting room every day," said Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke.
"He was really starting to turn the corner on the field and become a productive football player for us. The good news is he's young, he's a great kid and he has a lot of great football ahead of him. We will help him get through this."
