Michigan head coach Brady Hoke announced on Wednesday that highly touted freshman defensive back Jabrill Peppers will miss the remainder of the season. Per ESPN:

Peppers suffered a leg injury in September and has not played since the fourth week of the season. He decided this week to preserve a year of eligibility by remaining on the sideline for the rest of the season, which will allow him to apply for a medical redshirt waiver.

"He's improved, but he's just not going to be where you want a guy to be who has that kind of ability," Hoke said.

Peppers made eight tackles and returned one punt while playing in three of his first four college games. He also missed a game against Notre Dame early in September with an ankle injury. Hoke did not specify whether that was the same injury that has kept him out of action for Michigan's last five games.
