Michigan got some good injury news on the defensive side of the ball Wednesday.
Senior safety Delano Hill “should be good to go” on Saturday against Indiana, according to Michigan secondary coach Brian Smith. Hill left the Wolverines’ loss to Iowa late in the second half last Saturday with an undisclosed injury.
Hill’s presence is a big one in Michigan’s secondary, which has been one of the best units in college football this season. Hill has made three interceptions in 2016, two of which came against Maryland. He also returned a pick for a touchdown in the Wolverines’ season-opener against Hawaii.
Hill has made 38 total tackles this season, forced a fumble and defended three passes.
As Michigan appears to be healthy defensively, the team is still waiting official word on quarterback Wilton Speight, who was also hurt against the Hawkeyes. If he is unable to play Saturday, John O’Korn will be under center for No. 3 Michigan.
