Chase Winovich and his injury status are one of the biggest storylines heading into kickoff at Ohio State-Michigan this afternoon. Here's the latest on the status of the Wolverines' star defensive player.

Michigan's star senior was injured during last week's victory, though Jim Harbaugh said things were looking promising for Winovich moving forward.

Winovich has been questionable for the Ohio State game all week, with details surrounding his status being pretty scarce.

The Michigan star defender has been hinting at his status on social media, though.

Winovich posted the following image on his Instagram account last night:

That's certainly interesting.

Winovich's teammates believe he'll be on the field with them come kickoff, too.

Michigan's star quarterback, Shea Patterson, told reporters earlier in the week that he thought Winovich would play against Ohio State.

"You'd have to kill him to take him out," Patterson said. "I'm not sure on the progress yet, but he's a tough guy.

"I've talked to him. He says he's feeling better. I'd assume he'd play but you never know the severity of it. Knowing him, I think he'll play."

We'll likely get a final update on Winovich and his playing status sometime before kickoff.

Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon E.T. The game will be on FOX.
