Michigan sophomore WR Tarik Black (foot) is being limited to certain routes while playing.

Black's restrictions come after he suffered a foot injury just before the start of the season, and it sounds like Michigan is being cautious to make sure he doesn't aggravate that foot injury. He hasn't been a factor yet, but as he gets healthier with their games at the end of the season. Assuming the Wolverines keep winning, those games are going to be huge.

Michigan junior CB Lavert Hill is in the concussion protocol.

"(Still) being evaluated," Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. "Concussion protocol." Hill left in the first half of the blowout victory of Rutgers and did not return. The star corner is questionable for Saturday's game against Indiana until we hear otherwise.
Nov 12 - 2:28 PM

Michigan sophomore WR Nico Collins posted three catches for 56 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-7 win at Rutgers.

Collins has come on with three touchdowns over the past three games, and he has five grabs for 109 yards across the last two contests. He hasn't been rolling up huge numbers, but he has been an important cog in the offense. He'll try and keep up the scoring ways in the final game of the season in the Big House against Indiana next Saturday in the last tune-up before the showdown at Ohio State on Nov. 24.
Nov 10 - 9:58 PM

Michigan senior RB Karan Higdon rushed 15 times for 42 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's 42-7 win at Rutgers.

Higdon opened the scoring with a 1-yard run with :45 left in the first quarter, and he opened the second quarter with another 1-yard scoring plunge. Higdon saw his 100-yard streak snapped at seven games, as he got off to a slow start with just 2.8 yards per carry. Then the game started to get out of hand and the Wolverines rolled with Tru Wilson and Chris Evans to close it out. He'll look to get back into triple figures against Indiana in the final game at the Big House next Saturday.
Nov 10 - 9:46 PM

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson completed 18-of-27 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 42-7 road win against Rutgers.

There might be some folks wishing Patterson and the offense scored a few more points, but most fans and fantasy players can't complain. Patterson has racked up two or more TD strikes in three straight outings, and six of his past nine outings overall. The 260 passing yards was his second-highest total of the season, too. Patterson and the Wolverines will play their final home game against Indiana next Saturday before their showdown at Ohio State on Nov. 24.
Nov 10 - 9:37 PM

Former Florida QB Tim Tebow said that he believes that Ohio State will beat Michigan on Nov. 24.

"I think they’re going to be a favorite against Ohio State, and Ohio State is going to be able to knock them off and go to the Big Ten Championship," Tebow said, later adding that "[Michigan hasn't beaten Ohio State] yet. Will it be this year? I’m saying probably not." The Wolverines crashed into the latest Playoff rankings at No. 4, with Ohio State trailing a ways back at No. 10. OSU will have to get past Michigan State and Maryland prior to The Game, while UM will have contests against Rutgers and Indiana before they have their shot at taking down their conference foe.

Michigan DC Don Brown is one of the finalists for the Frank Broyles Award.

The award goes to the top assistant coach in the country. It's tough to think of a better assistant in 2018 than Brown, considering the defense he coordinates is the main reason that the Wolverines have an excellent chance of winning the Big Ten and reaching the College Football Playoff. The full list of nominees can be found in the link below.

In the latest release of the College Football Playoff rankings, Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame slotted in Nos. 1-4.

No surprise on the first three teams, but the real question coming into Tuesday's rankings release was who would land at No. 4 following LSU's loss to Alabama on Saturday. Michigan drew that assignment on the heels of their dominant Week 10 win over Penn State. In sequential order, Nos. 5-10 in this rankings set were Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State. Undefeated UCF is currently sitting at No. 12.
Nov 6 - 10:28 PM

When asked if he had any thought of sitting out the remainder of the season, Michigan junior DE Rashan Gary responded, "Absolutely not."

Gary (6'5/283) had missed the past three games with a shoulder injury prior to making his return against Penn State on Saturday. We've already seen two injured players -- Nick Bosa and Rodney Anderson -- peace out on their teams in order to begin draft preparation. This thought apparently was never a serious consideration for Gary, who is expected to be a high first-round selection should he declare this winter. Instead, the junior standout will look to help Michigan make its push for a Playoff spot over the final three games of the regular-season campaign. The first two contests in that triumvirate do not figure to be particularly trying, as they will come against Rutgers and Indiana. Then, Ohio State.
Nov 6 - 7:13 PM

Michigan redshirt freshman RB Kurt Taylor will transfer.

Taylor (5'8/194) did not play last season after signing with the program as a three-star recruit. He has yet to see a carry for the current campaign. With bodies a-plenty ahead of him in the Ann Arbor running backs room, Taylor will look for a more clean opportunity at playing time with his impending transfer.
Nov 6 - 7:02 PM

Michigan HC John Harbaugh says redshirt freshman QB Dylan McCaffrey (collarbone) is "probably" done for the year.

McCaffrey suffered a broken collarbone in the final minutes against Penn State while polishing off the blowout win on Saturday. Harbaugh indicated that third-year sophomore Brandon Peters and true freshman Joe Milton will compete for backup duties behind Shea Patterson this week in practice.
Nov 5 - 2:01 PM

Following Saturday's win over Penn State, Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh announced that redshirt freshman QB Dylan McCaffrey suffered a broke collarbone.

McCaffrey (6'5/217) was inserted into the game late as the Wolverines held a commanding lead over the Nittany Lions. The redshirt freshman, who has appeared in five games this season, rushed for 14 yards on two carries Saturday afternoon. With McCaffrey unavailable, junior Grant Peters is likely to serve as Shea Patterson's backup moving forward.
Nov 3 - 8:12 PM

Michigan senior RB Karan Higdon ran for 132 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in a 42-7 walloping of Penn State on Saturday.

The Wolverines were able to rush for 259 yards against Penn State on Saturday, and the majority of those were by the talented junior tailback. His score was a plunge up the middle from four yards to extend the lead to 35-0 in the fourth. It's now seven-straight games over 100 yards for the 5-foot-10, 202-pound junior, and his touchdown count ups to seven. Both numbers will almost assuredly go up next Saturday against lowly Rutgers.
Nov 3 - 7:11 PM

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson completed 11-of-17 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 42 yards and a score in a 42-7 rout of Penn State on Saturday.

This was very, very impressive; at least from a Michigan standpoint. Patterson didn't have to do much, but when he was asked to throw he was an effective passer; throwing touchdowns to Donovan Peoples-Jones and Zach Gentry and adding his second rushing touchdown in three games. Patterson (6'2/205) and the Wolverines are playing as well as any team in the country right now. Pity Rutgers, who play them next Saturday.
Nov 3 - 7:07 PM

Michigan junior DE Rashan Gary (shoulder) was part of the first team defense for warmups ahead of Saturday's game against Penn State.

There were questions earlier in the week as to whether or not Gary, who has missed Michigan's last three games due to a shoulder injury that was suffered in August, would be available to play Saturday. His going through 11 on 11 work with the first-team defense may be a positive sign when it comes to the junior's availability for the pivotal Big Ten East matchup.
