ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins was healthy enough to walk around and watch his teammates practice Friday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, he injured his neck and was hospitalized for precautionary reasons and evaluation.

Wolverines coach Brady Hoke released a statement Friday morning saying Pipkins had movement in all of his extremities.

Team spokesman Justin Dickens said there is no timetable for Pipkins to participate in practice.

The 6-foot-3, 340-pound Pipkins is a highly touted freshman from Kansas City, Mo.
