New, 8 comments

It wouldn't be football season without a weekly injury report. Here is the latest regarding who is on the list and their status for the upcoming game.

College football is officially back... and with that, so are the injuries.

During his weekly press conference with the media, Michigan coach Brady Hoke updated the status on a couple of Michigan's players leading up to Saturday's contest against Notre Dame (Sept. 6, 7:30 p.m. NBC).

Jabrill Peppers

Hoke gave us a glimpse into the immediate status of freshman corner Jabrill Peppers after last Saturday's game against Appalachian State. It appears that his absence from the second half of the game was simply precautionary because of an ankle injury.

Now, heading into Monday, it is more of the same from Hoke and the overall status for Saturday should not change barring any major setbacks.

"He's been in there all morning getting treatment," Hoke said. "We haven't started school yet. I made a decision at halftime, and they could start treating it right away, not to come out for the second half. We're excited and we will evaluate every day. He's working hard to get better.

"I don't think he'll be a question mark, he'll be ready to play."

Delano Hill

After missing the season opener and being listed as "no contact" through most of fall camp due to a broken jaw, safety Delano Hill will be available and ready to play against Notre Dame.

"Delano will be available and ready to go," Hoke said.

Kyle Kalis

Although he did play on Saturday, the status of Kyle Kalis' back is still in question. According to Hoke, Kalis appears to be "fine."

"He's fine," Hoke said. "His back is fine and he held up great."
