Michigan’s redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters had to leave the game against Wisconsin midway through the third quarter. He’d been rocked by a hit from linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel, and remained motionless on the ground for a few minutes.
Peters left the game on a cart, but had managed to stand up on his own. Jim Harbaugh said after the game that Peters was taken to the hospital and getting tested for a head injury.
“Brandon was shaken up by the play. He’s now getting some tests over at the hospital, he’s going to meet us at the plane, so we’ll have a better idea after we see him.”
After Peters left, momentum seemed to flip toward Wisconsin’s favor. The Badgers scored on consecutive drives getting big plays from quarterback Alex Hornibrook and wide receiver A.J. Taylor.
The Athletic’s Max Bultman is reporting that Peters was knocked out on the play and is alert now.
I'm told Peters was knocked out, but is currently alert. Has a headache. Also told CT was clear.— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) November 18, 2017
Before the injury, Peters had been playing well. He finished the day hitting nine of his 18 passes for 157 yards and a QB rating of 123.
