Michigan freshman DL Donovan Jeter will miss the 2017 with an injury, head coach Jim Harbaugh announced during his Monday press conference.
Jeter, a former 4-star recruit and early enrollee at Michigan, had surgery on an unspecified injury. Harbaugh did not specify when the injury took place, but Jeter was spotted on crutches during Michigan’s opener against Florida and did not play in either of the Wolverines two games.
Harbaugh added that RB Kareem Walker has a knee injury and WR Oliver Martin injured an “upper extremity.” Neither dressed for Michigan’s win over Cincinnati.
“I know you guys used to have some kind of dress thing, if that’s what you’re asking me,” Harbaugh said. “If you’re sitting in the press box with binoculars, seeing who’s dressed and who’s not, that’s your business. This will be the last time I address this.
“I’m not going to address you and binoculars, seeing who’s dressed and trying see who’s not. Guys will be working through things. It’s just not fair or right. When you’re talking about college players and what they have physically wrong or what injury they have. That’s not your business or anybody else’s. There’s no injury report. There’s no dress list. That’s the explanation. It’s not fair to those guys, to broadcast what ailment they have or what injury they have. Is that fair?”
