Michigan Wolverines defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins suffered an ACL tear in his knee and is out for the rest of the 2013 NCAA season.

Michigan Wolverines defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins is out for the season.

This was confirmed by no less than the Wolverines' official athletic website on Oct. 7. Pipkins suffered a torn ACL injury in Michigan's 42-13 rout of the visiting Minnesota Golden Gophers last Saturday. 

Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke spoke about the unfortunate incident.

"You hurt for Ondre, and I really do because I coach him and he's in my meeting room every day. He was really starting to turn the corner on the field and become a productive football player for us. 

"The good news is he's young, he's a great kid and he has a lot of great football ahead of him. We will help him get through this." 

In spite of Pipkins' loss, Michigan got a reprieve when junior linebacker Jake Ryan was allowed by his doctors to play, per ESPN's Chantel Jennings. 

Hoke, who said he could "potentially" suit up for No. 25 Michigan's next game against the Penn State Nittany Lions, is taking a cautious approach nonetheless.

"I think he's getting closer. We'll have a good practice with him (Tuesday) and believe me, he's wanting to play, seems to feel okay. But we still need to make sure he can do the things he's capable of doing." 

Whether or not Ryan will play, Richard Ash was listed as the next man up, according to Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press

Others who may be tapped to fill in for Pipkins include Willie Henry, Ryan Glasgow and Tom Strobel. 

Pipkins is a sophomore and Kansas City native who saw action in all five games for Michigan this season and recorded seven tackles along the way.

Michigan Football: Are Willie Henry and Ondre Pipkins the Real Deal?

Jul 16 2014 5:11pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Willie Henry and Ondre Pipkins have yet to reach stardom, but they're most certainly two of the most important pieces to Michigan's defensive line. Primed to pounce, Henry could very well be one of the best-kept secrets in the Big Ten. Really, the Wolverines probably aren't entirely sure about what he can do—it's not like he's an established mainstay. However, while relatively untapped in terms of pote ...
