ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Before Michigan’s season started, the Wolverines’ secondary looked like a group with the potential to be the best unit on the team.

It returned all four starters and most of its depth. It had an All-Big Ten safety in Jordan Kovacs, a ballhawk in Thomas Gordon, a consistent presence in J.T. Floyd and a potential shutdown corner in Blake Countess.

Then Countess went down for the season with a torn ACL less than 30 minutes into the season opener and while expectations might have changed, the Wolverines’ play in the secondary wasn’t affected too much.
