Jabrill Peppers Will Not Play In Orange Bowl Due To Injury

Jabrill Peppers will not play in the Orange Bowl.

Mr. Everything, Jabrill Peppers will not be playing in the Orange Bowl due to injury. The stud linebacker reportedly suffered the injury in practice leading up to the game.

The injury appears to be a hamstring problem. Peppers tried to give it a go in warmups, but pulled up after re-injuring the hammy, according to NFL Analyst Albert Breer.

This is a huge blow for the Wolverines, who are set to face a very potent offense in Florida State. Seminoles running back Dalvin Cook has been a monster this season, and the Cook-Peppers matchup was going to be one of the highlights of the Orange Bowl.

Now Michigan will have to replace Peppers, who does more than just line up at linebacker. The junior also lined up at quarterback, running back, and returned kicks for the Wolverines this season.

The Heisman Trophy finalist will most likely play his next game in the NFL.
