Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh says redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac (undisclosed) has a "very good chance" to play against Maryland on Saturday.

Isaac missed Saturday's win over Minnesota. In his absence, Karan Higdon (200 yards, two scores) and Chris Evans (191 yards, two scores) both went off. Higdon and Evans will still be key factors in the game plan if Isaac returns, but the senior's presence would obviously cut into each's touches.

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 89 yards on 16 carries in the school's 29-13 win over Air Force on Saturday.

This includes a 32-yard run. Isaac also caught two passes for six yards in the victory. Michigan's offense only needed to score one touchdown, as the other points came from five field goals and one punt return touchdown. Isaac needs to remain the consistent part of Michigan's offense.

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 133 yards on 20 carries in the school's 36-14 win over Cincinnati on Saturday.

Isaac is definitely Michigan's feature back, as he carried the ball 20 times in comparison to the next most carries of five. Isaac's biggest run went for 53 yards on a toss to the left side, and thanks to great blocking he practically went untouched until final contact.

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 114 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's 33-17 victory over Florida.

Isaac outplayed starting RB Chris Evans (22 carries for 78 yards), but, to be fair, more of his caries came after Florida's defense had become thoroughly demoralized by the struggles of their sputtering offense. Isaac is a strong backup running back, and that's what he'll remain unless Evans gets hurt.

Land of 10's Kevin Goheen writes that Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac "has more speed than one might think for a player of his size."

Isaac measures in at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds. Goheen sees him as a perfect complement to sophomore RB Chris Evans, who has a bit more of a cut-and-bolt game than his redshirt senior compatriot. Last season, Isaac rushed for 417 yards and five touchdowns. He doesn't figure to see as many carries as Evans, but should see plenty of work in his own right.

Michigan redshirt senior RB Ty Isaac rushed for 47 yards on five carries in the team's spring game.

Isaac was second on the team in rushing during the spring game, topped only by Karan Higdon (81 yards on 12 carries). The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Isaac turned in 417 rushing yards and five touchdowns last season. Both Higdon and Isaac will be working in rotation behind expected starter Chris Evans during the coming season. Kareem Walker -- who was plagued by academic issues as a freshman in 2016 -- and true freshman backs O'Maury Samuels and Kurt Taylor could also work their way into the mix.

Michigan redshirt junior RB Ty Isaac indicated that he was humbled by his experience in 2015.

Isaac lost out on the starting job to De'Veon Smith early in the 2015 season, then found himself off the depth chart altogether in November due to an "internal matter" (per Mr. Cryptic, Jim Harbaugh). The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder's motivated to come on strong for 2016. He's lost 10 pounds and is hopeful that the new-found lightness of being will help him to avoid nagging leg injuries. Michigan has a deep stable of running backs behind Smith, but that doesn't concern Isaac, who said, "You've just got to be good at your skill set and be consistent. I think that's the biggest thing. Anybody who can be consistent and make plays they'll be able to take the spot."

Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Ty Isaac is not listed on the school's depth chart.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh called it an "internal matter," so we can conclude this is some kind of punishment or suspension. Isaac did not play against Minnesota and has barely seen the field when available.
