Michigan Injury Status (Speculative)

Submitted by Navy Wolverine on November 12th, 2017 at 1:24 PM

With a handful of players getting dinged yesterday, I’m starting to lose track of all our injuries. Since colleges don’t go public who is hurt and severity of injury, it is hard to keep track of them all. Here are all the injuries that seem to be known and their severity going into the game next weekend. Could be missing somebody. It’s that time of year when everyone has injuries but we have 11 major contributors who could be out and a handful of others who have some significant issues.

Doubtful / Out

QB Wilton Speight - Neck
WR Tarik Black - Foot
TE Nick Eubanks – Upper body / neck?
OT Grant Newsome - Leg


CB Lavert Hill – Concussion
WR Kekoa Crawford – Lower Body?
WR Nico Collins – Lower Body
RB Karan Higdon – Lower Body / Ankle
RB Ty Isaac – Lower Body
OG – Mike Onwenu – Lower Body
DE Rashan Gary – Shoulder? Might be probable but he didn’t return after getting injured


CB David Long – Knee
WR Grant Perry – Lower Body? Doghouse? Not sure but played very little yesterday and missed some time before that
RB Kareem Walker – Lower body / ankle? Played yesterday but has been dinged up
TE Ty Wheatley – Lower Body?? Played as well yesterday but has also been dinged up

Take any team put their back-up QB's in to finish out the season in the 4th game of the season. Not to mention their 1st team left tackle being sidelined for the entire season, they would be very hard pressed to be 8-2. I think that record is outstanding all things being considered. I know there are 2 games remaining with the top two teams in the B1G..

He might be trolling but he's not wrong. Who is our best win? We thought Florida might be good at the start of the season, but that's certainly not the case. Cincinnati and Air Force are pretty butt. We've beaten up on the lower teams in the B1G. Wisconsin will be the first true test. I think we'll pass it.

Yes he is wrong. We lost our qb, Marylands only loss to injury on offense all year has been qb, yet their season fell apart when it happened. FSU has been crap without ther qb.. I will wait for examples of teams that have had better years after losing their qb, not to mention all the other injuy problems we have had.

Sometimes they are a big part of the game. Saying that all teams have to deal with them is pointless. You're implying that injuries won't or shouldn't affect some teams much more than others, which is utter nonsense.

I will wait for you to name the team that lost their qb this year and has dealt with it better than us. I mean injuries are part of the game and it's bullshit to use it as an excuse, so it should be easy to find exaples of teams that have done it better than we have right?

Which is interesting because Mississippi State was not bitching about their top 3 receivers not starting the game with injuries or Bama having difficulty running the ball outside until Mississippi State's best safety and a starting inside linebacker left the game with injuries.

Every team is affected by injuries at this point of the season. Some, of course, have more than others. The way Bama recruits, there isn't as much drop off as you find with other teams when you move down the depth chart.

I'm not feeling much pity for Bama!

Speight and Eubanks are hoping to dress this week. Black will be back for
Bowl game. Everyone else will be iffy meaning i think theres a chane alot of guys play. I think
Gary may have a dislocated shoulder. Great thread and im
Curious what others know or think about these injuries. This is key for the next two weeks.

I dislocated my shoulder during a game making a tackle. I had to leave the field and have it put back in the socket. Actually was taken to the hospital. I wasn't sitting around joking on the bench after they cut me out of my jersey. There would have been no way for me to wear a backpack over both shoulders for several days to a week. The doctor would not allow it, even if I could get both arms through the straps.
