Michigan Injury Report for Indiana

Submitted by Tim on September 24th, 2009 at 7:42 PM
I don't want to push the MGoPodcast off the top of the front page, so I'll just post this as a Diary for the time being. Brian can promote it to the front page later if he sees fit. As far as what the news means, it's kind of a mixed bag:
  • Everyone already knew Molk was out. That's nothing new
  • Rodriguez has already said that Moosman will start at center in Molk's place. His sill being included on the injury report probably just means he'll play despite not being quite 100%
  • Tim McAvoy is unlikely to figure into the offensive line rotation any time soon, unless there are more injuries. His ability to (almost) play is not a big factor one way or the other.
  • Rodriguez had previously thought Williams was fine, and the fact that he probably won't play isn't encouraging. Still, that hopefully won't be a factor against Indiana, and it will also give the younger guys some playing time. Maybe we'll even see Emilien on defense to spell Kovacs!
Without further ado, your injury report for the Indiana game:

See? This is what happens when Brian lowers the points threshold to post diaries. We get stupid stuff like this from people who've never posted anything of value.

he's close to 100% at this point. I have to say he hasn't exactly looked like he was playing hurt, he looked pretty good to me in all of his carries and there's a certain Notre Dame DE who is still probably wondering what truck he ran into a couple weeks back.

Here's hoping for MINOR RAGE on Saturday.

Moosman at center. Rich Rod has been discussing depth at the line position since he arrived and this is our first major test of the progress we've made in that area.

I do think that UM will handle IU's defensive front and I expect Tate to play maybe his best game of the year (which is really saying something considering two weeks ago).
