Michigan’s all-star ATH Jabrill Peppers will not participate in the Capitol One’s Orange Bowl on Friday against the Florida State Seminoles, not to prepare for NFL Draft but to heal and recover from a very recent unspecified injury.
Acoording to source, Peppers had been practicing all week and looked forward to the Bowl Game, but on Thursday’s practice, he tweaked his hamstring while practicing at the Miami Dolphins’ team facility. Everything was fine until just minutes before kickoff. Jabrill Peppers had warmed up in full pads atHard Rock Stadium, but decided that he was not healthy enough to play a game. Not a “serious injury”, but Peppers was not risking it.
The Michigan stud has yet to announce the decision to stay as wolverine and return to “The Big House” or declare for the 2017 NFL draft. Only time will tell.
