Michigan junior DE Rashan Gary (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Gary (6'5/290) has missed the previous two games for the Wolverines due to the shoulder injury he suffered against Northwestern on September 29. Jim Harbaugh isn't talking about injuries this week because of course he isn't, so we likely won't know if Gary plays until we see him in uniform -- maybe not even then -- against the Spartans on Saturday.

Michigan sophomore LB Drew Singleton will transfer.

Singleton is a Top-100 2017 recruit who was rated as the No. 5 outside linebacker in the country. He committed to Michigan over offers from most of the big boys, including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Michigan State. No reason was given for the New Jersey native's decision.

Michigan QB Shea Patterson indicated that redshirt freshman WR Tarik Black (foot) could return sometime over the next few weeks.

"Possibly," Patterson said. "We're not sure yet. It could be this week. It could be next week. It could be the week after that. I know, I see him every single day and he's working his tail off to get back." While HC Jim Harbaugh is reluctant to discuss Black's status, the quotes of his teammates seem to indicate that Black is nearing a return to the field. "He doing rehab," WR Nico Collins said Tuesday. "We're just seeing him do stuff on the treadmill. He looks pretty good. Hopefully he comes back soon."

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson said he hasn’t been limited in practices after he received five stitches on his left hand following Saturday's win against Wisconsin.

Patterson's non-throwing hand was iced Tuesday as he spoke with reporters. The stitches were required to close a gash he suffered in Saturday’s win over Wisconsin. Patterson indicated to reporters that his left hand won't effect him at all this weekend against Michigan State.

October 14th's AP Poll: 1) Alabama, 2) Ohio State, 3) Clemson, 4) Notre Dame, 5) LSU, 6) Michigan, 7) Texas, 8) Georgia, 9) Oklahoma, 10) UCF

After picking up big wins, LSU climbed eight spots and Michigan climbed six spots to crack the Top-10. There are five teams with one loss ahead of undefeated UCF. West Virginia dropped to No. 13 after losing to Iowa State, Washington dropped to No. 15 after losing to Oregon, and Penn State dropped to N0. 18 after losing to Michigan State. The Spartans (No. 24) are joined by Iowa (No. 19) and Washington State (No. 25) as teams who are in the Top-25 who weren't last week. San Diego State, Appalachian State, and Utah State all received votes, but they didn't make it in.

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson completed 14-of-20 passes for 124 yards while rushing for 90 yards and a touchdown on nine attempts in Saturday's 38-13 win over Wisconsin.

Patterson put up a season-best on the ground versus the Badgers. Now, the bulk of that action came on an 81-yard gallop down the left sideline, so we're not exactly talking about a Lamar Jackson-like effort. Still, it was nice to see Patterson get out on the move. Michigan State shows next on the UM schedule.
Oct 13 - 11:47 PM

Michigan junior RB Karan Higdon rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 38-13 win over Wisconsin.

HIgdon (5'10/202) went over the 100-yard mark for the fifth time in 2018 during Saturday's clutch home win. After a scoreless first quarter, the junior broke the seal with a little two-yard scoring run early in the second quarter, with Michigan going on to take a slim 13-10 lead into halftime. They would score one more touchdown in the third quarter before pulling away (and then some) in the final stanza. For the season, Higdon has now rushed for 687 yards and six touchdowns. No rest for the weary, though, as UM will bounce from this impressive win right into a date with Michigan State next weekend.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline listed Michigan senior TE Zach Gentry as a "riser" after his performance against Maryland on Saturday.

Gentry had a mammoth game in the 42-21 victory over the Terrapins, hauling in seven passes for 112 yards. Pauline has been waiting for the 6-foot-8, 262-pound tight end to have a breakout game, and that certainly qualifies as one. "The massive tight end also dominated his blocking assignments," he writes. "Though he has a thin body of work, Gentry presently grades within the top five at the tight end position."
Oct 10 - 2:19 PM

Michigan junior RB Chris Evans (undisclosed) is expected to play on Saturday against Wisconsin.

Evans warmed up for Saturday's game against Maryland, but ultimately ended up sitting out the win. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back has battled injuries for most of the year, but the talented tailback is expected back for a huge game against the Badgers on Saturday. He and Karen Higdon should see the majority of the carries against Wisconsin.
Oct 10 - 12:45 PM

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said there is "hope" that junior DE Rashan Gary (shoulder) will be available for Saturday's game against No. 15 Wisconsin.

Gary (6'5/290) was in street clothes last week against Maryland after Harbaugh denied there was a major shoulder injury, but it looks like he will suit up this week. The potential top-10 overall NFL pick will be a fun watch as he tries to contain Alex Hornibrook and Jonathan Taylor.
Oct 8 - 7:23 PM

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said sophomore WR Tarik Black (foot) is "continuing to progress nicely."

Black (6'3/215) broke his foot just before the season opener and was given a 6-8 week timeline, which puts him just a couple weeks away from his season debut. The sophomore receiver showed up to last Saturday's game without a walking boot or any protective gear on his foot, which aligns with Harbaugh's statement. Black is a dynamic receiver who has been described as a "potential x-factor" for the Wolverines offense. Michigan is currently averaging 221 passing yards (80th in CFB) and two touchdowns (42nd) per game, and Black will help elevate those passing numbers when he returns.
Oct 8 - 2:17 PM

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson completed 8-of-9 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown when facing pressure in Saturday's 42-21 win over Maryland

His stats under pressure add up to a 150.9 passer rating. Patterson has had an up-and-down season with multiple dominant outings and a few very average ones. He has a make-or-break game against No. 16 Wisconsin next week on the road.
Oct 7 - 11:57 AM

Michigan senior TE Zach Gentry caught seven passes for 112 yards in Saturday's 42-21 win over Maryland.

Gentry (6'8/262) coming through with his best overall performance of the season, here. This was his first game with more than four catches, and also his first with more than 100 yards receiving. He's put up a 20-306-1 receiving line in six games this year.
Oct 6 - 5:20 PM

Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson completed 19-of-27 passes for 282 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-21 win over Maryland.

Patterson hit on one touchdown pass in each of the final three quarters. His game logs are quite the wormhole to tumble into. In three of six games this season, the junior signal-caller has failed to throw for more than one touchdown (two of those games saw him go without a touchdown pass altogether). His other three contests have each seen him connect on three scoring passes. He's found moderate success against inferior opponents in Western Michigan, SMU and now Maryland. Otherwise, not a ton doing statistically for the Ole Miss transfer.
Oct 6 - 5:08 PM

Michigan junior RB Karan Higdon rushed for 103 yards on 25 carries in Saturday's 42-21 win over Maryland.

Higdon (5'10/202) wasn't tearing it up with explosive run after explosive run, but he reached 100 yards rushing for the fourth time this season -- in five games played -- nonetheless. The junior has gone off for 582 rushing yards for the overall campaign. He'll try for another respectable output in a huge date with Wisconsin next weekend.
