Michigan Football Injury Report for Wisconsin

Submitted by Tim on November 18th, 2010 at 6:25 PM

Press release:


Ferrara, John                     Knee

Floyd, JT                               Ankle

Jones, Mike                        Leg

Jones, Teric                        Knee

Odoms, Martavious        Foot

Van Slyke, Jared               Clavicle

Williams, Mike                   Head

Woolfolk, Troy                  Ankle



Lewan, Taylor                    Head

Shaw, Mike                        Head



Martin, Mike                      Ankle

Mouton, Jonas                  Chest


No surprises, on the heels of the news from yesterday that Lewan may have been concussed against Purdue. Martin and Mouton are likely to grit it out if they're needed.

Mouton and Martin WILL be needed!  The question is, is a 75% Mouton/Martin better than their backup?  I have to think with Wisconsin's run game, keeping fresh bodies alone would be reason enough to necessitate these guys.


November 18th, 2010 at 6:55 PM ^

Questionable: Taylor Lewan: Head

...haven't people been saying this all season long?

(Seriously though, get better soon -- the donkeys are getting out of control around here.)

and never saw the field, we should be prepared to see Mouton and Martin on the sidelines for the whole game.

Losing Lewan and Shaw is as unnerving as a post-Gittleson dinner poop.

Personally I have would have anyone who is at all injured sit out this game.  This means anyone included on the list along with any other players who have lingering injuries.  I would rather see everyone up to full speed when we face the bucknuts.

While I agree that Lewan has proven himself to be an upgrade over these guys, I feel a lot less nervous about having him out than I would about a lot of other positions.  Our O line finally has some depth, and we were doing quite well there before Lewan broke into the starting rotation.  Also, while Lewan is a beast, he has also made some mistakes that have stalled drives.  If his head is affected, his judgment will not be improved.  Letting some experience guys get the start if Lewan is questionable is fine by me.  I want him ready to ride some buckeye donkeys. 

That being said, if he's good to go there's no reason not to have him in there.

What is the upside to declaring a previously injured player 100% until he performs in a game?

I ignore the percentage and track the coach speak about how involved people were in practice.

I believe Mike Martin is performing all practice drills as usual, Mouton is being held out a little, and people with bruised brains aren't allowed to hit or be hit.

Mouton being a senior, I think he'd need to be in crutches to not play in this last home game.



November 18th, 2010 at 8:24 PM ^

must be healthy.  I hope he practiced effectively this week.  From what little I have seen of him he will be needed.  Go Fitz.  This is by no way to slight to our other backs.  V Smith has been at least as effective as Minor or Brown circa 2009


November 18th, 2010 at 9:50 PM ^

As much as Taylor, Shaw, Martin, and Mouton will make a huuuuuge difference in Saturday's game, and I want nothing more than to see us win while in attendance, I would half-rather rest all four to ensure their availability for next weekend's game against osu.

Winning out would be a dream, but I would rather have a W against osu than Wiscy.

I was thinking the same thing. Actually I was hoping they would have let him sit out for the Purdue game. But these guys are so competitive that it must be hard not to let them play.

Will miss Lewan. He has a lot of penalties, but when he is in, it seems like the energy level gets more intense.


November 18th, 2010 at 10:57 PM ^

Based on what RR has done so far this season it's a pretty safe bet IMO that none of the players listed are going to see the field.  I can't remember any player being listed as 50 or even 75% that played.  I could be wrong (and i'm sure I'll be quickly corrected if I am) but it sure seems like if a player is on Rich's injury list they are really, really hurt.



November 19th, 2010 at 12:10 AM ^

How awesome would it be if fitz came out and started.....and dominated. Getting 200 yards on 20 attempts with 4 touchdowns. 


A man can wish, but in all seriousness, it would be amazing if he came out and played well and helped us to a victory.


November 19th, 2010 at 7:23 AM ^

if lewan is out and martin can't play extended minutes. patterson played well last week but i think he'll get steamrolled by those monsters on the wisc oline. get mr miyagi to ann arbor asap.

Braylon 5 Hour…

If Toussaint is healthy I'd like to see him get carries sometime early in the game so that if he can provide some kind of spark let's take advantage of it early...any running game we get from the tailbacks will make Denard's life a ton easier both throwing and running
