Michigan Injury Report for Iowa

Submitted by Tim on October 14th, 2010 at 8:22 PM

This isn't the most interesting Michigan press release you'll read today, but it'll suffice. To the press release!:

OUT (0% PLAY)

Jones, Mike.....................................................Leg

Odoms, Martavious.......................................Foot

Toussaint, Fitzgerald....................................Shoulder

Van Slyke, Jared............................................Clavicle

Williams, Mike................................................Head

Woolfolk, Troy.................................................Ankle

Van Slyke, Williams, and Woolfolk have been out the entire season, and Mike Jones has been out since the Notre Dame game with a broken leg (for which he should be able to get a redshirt).

That leaves Martavious Odoms and Fitzgerald Toussaint as the new(ish) guys. Toussaint will miss this week, and will return for the Penn State game at the soonest. Odoms broke his foot against State and will be out for an extended time. We've known both of these since Monday, so in that respect, the is the most encouraging injury report we've seen this year.

It looks as if we can assume all the others not on this report are expected to be 100% come Saturday.  Let's hope for a big day by Shaw which in turn should open up some long runs by Denard.

It's nice to not see Shaw on the list. I think he's really going to help the offense out. Vincent Smith isn't impressing me, and it will be nice to see another homerun threat in the backfield against a defense that probably won't give us many opportunities. I will be incredibly pleased if Roh is allowed to stay at DE for the vast majority of the game saturday.

This is kind of a side note, but, to me, the defense looks like it has changed from the bend don't break defense to the break don't bend. It seemed as though the defense held MSU in check for a good portion of the game with scoring drives coming off of a big run/pass, or a key large 3rd down conversion. There's still a lot of work to be done, but the defense seems to be moving in the right direction. If the defense catches a break or two Saturday while holding onto the ball, I think Michigan can win it.

Tay Odoms will be missed, especially in tight games.  Sure the WR position is deep.  What we will sorely miss is his on the field leadership.  Go back and watch the ND game, his smile when he or Roundtree got hit hard and his swagger were key.  His confidence was contagious for a young offense.

Glad to have Shaw back in the lineup. And with the defensive performance so far, you almost wish that we'd get a whole new cast in there ... or oust GRob, but c'est la vie.

Any speculation about what the biggest press release WILL BE today? Because bama was announced yesterday...or was that just a turn of phraise I'm not familiar with?

He has to be the most snake-bit person in the history of people.  It seems like he could be good if he weren't made of papier mache, or graham crackers, or whatever.
