Shortly before the Purdue game, it was announced that redshirt junior safety Jordan Kovacs would not be playing due to a knee injury suffered earlier during the week. Michigan coach Brady Hoke didn't speculate as to how long Kovacs would be out.

Hoke said he didn't believe Kovacs' absence attributed to the Boilermakers' ability to score on their first drive.

"The expectations are for the position," Hoke said. "If you're in there, there's a way we expect you to play."
