Earlier in the day, Zinter's mother, Tiffany Zinter, posted to Facebook and Instagram, confirming Zinter broke his tibia and fibia during Michigan's 30-24 win over Ohio State. In the post, she shared that Michigan players had FaceTimed Zinter from the locker room while he was in the ER.

"This is a TEAM and a brotherhood! They FaceTimed him from the locker room while he was in the ER, true brothers!!!" Zinter's mother wrote in the post.

Zinter was carted off in the second half. The entire Michigan team came to the sidelines to see him off. Zinter exited the game to "Let's Go Zak" chants from the crowd. Blake Corum scored a 22-yard touchdown on the next play and put up a "6" and "5" with his hands after scoring in honor of Zinter, who wears number 65.

"Just got off the phone with his mom, I think we got some positive news," interim coach Sherrone Moore said postgame. "So he'll heal and he'll be ready to go down the road some day."
