Michigan's football coach says quarterback Denard Robinson "should be ready to go" for Saturday's game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium, ESPN reports. The star Wolverines quarterback injured a nerve in his throwing arm in the second quarter of Saturday's loss at Nebraska and missed the second half.
USA Today reports coaches will give backup QB Russell Bellomy more snaps in practice this week "as a precaution."
The Pioneer Press notes Minnesota has only beaten Michigan three times in the past 35 years -- most recently in 2005.
Even after the Gophers pummeled the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday, the football team failed to attract a single vote in the SB National BlogPoll. Minnesota won a few votes in week 4.
