Hoke says team is "pretty healthy"

"We're good," Hoke said Friday evening during an interview on MGoBlue.com after the team's final walk through. "We've got Courtney (Avery) banged up, obviously, and Jake (Ryan).
"Outside of that, we're in pretty good shape."
Avery, who was penciled in to start at free safety, will miss at least two weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last weekend. Ryan, meanwhile, will be out until at least October as he continues to rehab his knee injury.
The only other players on the Michigan depth chart with listed, undisclosed, injuries were freshman running back Wyatt Shallman and junior tight end Jordan Paskorz.
"I think we had a good week," Hoke said. "The preparation's been good, the guys have been around, school hasn't started.
"We've had a good week."
Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.
