Bowling Green linebacker Demetrius Hardamon is in stable condition and cleared to walk, a day after an orthopedic injury led to him being placed on a backboard and onto a stretcher before being carted off the field at Michigan Stadium.

The school shared an update on Sunday, saying it hopes Hardamon will soon be released from the hospital.

Hardamon was hurt while tackling tight end Colston Loveland in the third quarter of No. 2 Michigan's 31-6 win.

"I saw the hit and I knew right then and there, there was something wrong," Falcons coach Scot Loeffler said Saturday night.

Hardamon, who is from Beavercreek, Ohio, had three tackles against the Wolverines and had at least 25 tackles in each of the previous two seasons. He has earned academic honors from the Mid-American Conference twice.
