Magnuson, Bryant, Pipkins and Burzynski OUT for Spring Practice
Monday, February 03, 2014 5:05 PM
Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday that rising sophomore guard/tackle Erik Magnuson will miss all of spring practice after having a surgical procedure performed on his shoulder.
"He'll be ready for fall, for sure," Hoke said Monday. "He just won't be ready for spring."
Junior guard Chris Bryant will also miss spring practice with a shoulder injury, as will senior offensive lineman Joey Burzynski (knee) and junior defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins (knee).
Hoke said sophomore wide receiver Amara Darboh (foot) and senior quarterback Devin Gardner (foot) will both be limited when spring practice opens Feb. 25.
The good news is we have bodies on the OL to compete, so lets see what they've got. Magnuson with a shoulder injury is particularly disturbing because he needs to add weight and muscle but if he can't lift, it's going to be hard for him to compete with the other guys and might get passed by on the depth chart.
Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.
