According to a University of Michigan spokesperson, cornerback Bake Countess had recent surgery on a core injury suffered during the 2013 season. He is expected to make a full recovery and will return in time for fall camp.

Injuries have not been kind to the Michigan football team this offseason. Another starter will miss some conditioning time with a procedure.

According to a team spokesperson, junior defensive back Blake Countess underwent a recent surgery to repair a core injury suffered during the 2013 season.

Countess, who missed the entire 2012 season due to an ACL tear suffered in the first game of the season against Alabama, is expected to make a full recovery and return in time for fall camp.

He appeared in all 13 games in 2013 and earned All-Big Ten honors. Also finishing the year with 46 tackles and six interceptions, tying Purdue's Ricardo Allen for best in the Big Ten.

Appearing mostly at nickel back during the spring game, he is expected to be a veteran leader alongside senior Raymon Taylor. Sophomores Jourdan Lewis and Channing Stribling along with incoming freshman Jabrill Peppers are also expected to compete for playing time in 2014.
