Coach Brady Hoke announced Monday that senior defensive back Courtney Avery will miss two weeks after receiving arthroscopic knee surgery on Saturday.
Hoke said the procedure was done to clean up some cartilage in Avery's knee, and noted that the senior is in good spirits and will "be back soon."
With Avery on the shelf, sophomore Jarrod Wilson will get the nod at free safety. Blake Countess and Raymon Taylor will be the team's starting corners.
UPDATE:Avery, who was on the verge of becoming the team's starting free safety, was asked specifically if he'd be back for the Notre Dame game on Sept. 7. But right now, he's not sure.
"I hope to get back as soon as possible," he said.
