Michigan stars Jabrill Peppers, Jake Butt miss Orange Bowl with injuries

10:51 PM ET

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Michigan junior Jabrill Peppers did not play for the Wolverines against Florida State in Friday’s Capital One Orange Bowl because of an unspecified injury, the school announced.

A source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Peppers tweaked his hamstring at practice Thursday at the Miami Dolphins’ team facility. Peppers practiced all week and planned to play, the source said, but after warming up in full pads at Hard Rock Stadium on Friday he decided he wasn’t healthy enough to play shortly before kickoff.

Michigan also lost Mackey Award-winning tight end Jake Butt during the first half. Butt clutched his right leg after he was tackled on a 16-yard reception in the second quarter.

The senior walked off the field and to the locker room without help from trainers. A team spokesman confirmed at halftime that Butt wouldn’t return to the game but did not add any specifics about the nature of his injury. He finished with three catches and 28 yards in the final game
