Injury Report Per Rivals

Submitted by Dr.Jay on September 27th, 2010 at 12:46 PM

Robinson suffered a bruised knee but will play Saturday at Indiana, Rodriguez said. He will be limited Monday, but coaches are hopeful he'll be able to practice Tuesday.

The news isn't as good for redshirt freshman running back Fitzgerald Toussaint. Toussaint, nursing a sore knee, injured his shoulder after carrying twice for 66 yards and a touchdown. He'll be evaluated further this week.

           Man is Fitz gonna be the next Minor/Brown where he cant shake the injury bug??? Hopefully its not bad, he seems like he is destined for greatness..

As requested:

Rodriguez is hopeful hybrid linebacker/safety Carvin Johnson will do more this week; he suffered a knee injury in the opener with UConn, but the coaches are optimistic he'll play. Linebacker Brandon Herron (ankle) is also expected to do more in practice this week and should play at Indiana.

That's a bummer about Fitz, outside of his obvious lack of top-end speed (obviously due to his knee not yet being 100%) he looked really good on his 2 runs.  Let him sit out again next week so he can heal and unleash him against MSU. 

I'm not too worried about Fitz's injuries right now becuase we have a couple guys more experienced than him getting the majority of the carries (and we have the Nard Dog) but I really hope this doesn't persist through the future because he could be very, very good.

Wow....I didn't think fitz got hurt again?! At least its not his knee that he hurt...that would probably have probably been worse to reinjure.

I'd say it's far more likely that he's not going to have much of a Michigan career at all. Some guys just seem to be fragile, and unfortunately for Fitz he's a lock for the Minor/Brown Award for Most Injured Running Back.
