According to Angelique, Minor is not looking good for Saturday, but Carlos looks like he'll play.

I can't imagine Minor NOT playing in this game. I think he'll tell the coaches whatever he needs to so that he can get on the field for his last battle with tOSU. He's been a warrior all year - hopefully, he'll be able to see the field on Saturday!

Yeah...I don't think there's any way that Minor stays out of this game. There's nothing to get healthy for. He may not start or get 20 carries, but I'd bet a chunk of change that he'll play, even if it's just goal line or short yardage.

Became my favorite player after his 4-down goalline performance in last years game. I find it tough to believe he wont be dressed and begging for some work on Saturday. And he'll get it.

Again, to reiterate what Magnus is saying, I think you hold nothing back in this game, because this is it. Granted, we don't want to screw up Odoms so he is sidelined during winter workouts and whatnot, but these guys need to be in the game.

Sigh...What's our record if Minor is healthy all year, and we can just pound away for 5 yards whenever we feel like it? That's at least worth 1 more win, and bowl eligibility, right?

Probably his last game at Michigan unless we pull out a win and make a bowl. He'll play. Plus, I like the reliability of RR's injury report much better. You know the one: the one that did not have Minor or Brown on it last week.

why do I feel like he is going to be listed as "Doubtful: (shoulder and ankle)" retroactively two years after he graduates.

It's just too bad. He could have had a really good career here had he been healthy.

I'm all in favor of "being a warrior" and toughing it out, but there comes a point where I'd rather see a healthy back-up play.

Look, the idea of an injured Minor forcing us to victory sure sounds like a great story, but not everyone performs like Michael Jordan when they're sick. The last thing we need is a guy limping and fumbling around etc.

because he's a Senior.
because he's the leader of the offense
because he will named a captain tomorrow
because he's going to make sure it's not his last game
because he knows he's needed as a blocker on passing downs even if he can't run 15+ times
