Michigan true freshman defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins, who was taken to the hospital on Friday after suffering a neck injury during morning drills, returned to the practice field on Monday.
In a statement released by Brady Hoke following the injury last week, it was noted that the 6-3, 340 pounder “had movement in all extremities and was taken to U-M Health System for precautionary reasons and evaluation.” Pipkins was released the same day and watched afternoon practice from the sidelines.
The Detroit News reported from athletic department sources that Pipkins had returned to the practice field today. Following his return from the hospital on Friday, the freshman defensive tackle posted the following messages on Twitter.
With the departure of Mike Martin and Will Heininger on the interior of the line, Pipkins is expected to complete for playing time at defensive tackle this fall.
