Michigan Wolverines defensive back Jeremy Clark suffered an injury scare during Saturday’s game against the Penn State Nittany Lions. The redshirt senior exited the game on the injury cart.
Clark left the game during the second half on Saturday, as the Wolverines were up big in Ann Arbor against Penn State. The injury putting a sour note on what was a big win for Michigan against Penn State in the early stages of their Big Ten schedule.
Clark is one of the players who has made the biggest leap from the Brady Hoke era under head coach Jim Harbaugh — the cornerback’s three interceptions in 2015 earned him a prominent role under the new coaching staff. Harbaugh installed Clark as the leader of the secondary this season after the breakout year as a Junior, a role that will now need to be filled if Clark is out for a significant period of time.
Without Clark, the Wolverines could face a tough test next week as the red-hot Wisconsin Badgers head to the Big House. The Wolverines have had a relatively easy run to their 4-0 start, but losing Clark would be their first real blow on their road in the Big Ten.
