Injuries mounted for both combatants

It felt like every time someone possessed the ball that there were players getting hurt in bunches for either squad.

After being relatively healthy for the better part of the season, Michigan football’s injuries finally caught up to them. Luckily most of them weren’t serious, except for cornerback Gemon Green who was shown leaving the field in a lot of pain.

There was no immediate update on Green, however. From the looks of it though things didn’t look good for him and betting on that alone means he probably won’t be returning anytime soon.

DJ Turner stepped in for Green and played admirably as he has shown so far this year. He and Vincent Gray will have to hold down the fort, while Green fights to get back to 100%.

For the rest of the pack, Michigan football will do everything in its power to have them all back for its crucial run that remains in November.

Indiana had its fair share of injuries as well. At one point in the contest, the announcer said that their entire defensive line got banged up, that’s how bad it was for both clubs.

Even their starting running back Stephen Carr fell victim to the injury bug and did not return, which left the Hoosiers with walk-ons trying to fill his void.
