I hate to lead a post with injury news but we heard yesterday that RB Drake Johnson from Ann Arbor Pioneer who beat out highly touted freshman Green and Smith tore his ACL in the Central game and will miss the entire season. My guess is he will get an injury redshirt and still have 4 more years in A2 if he wants it.
From Coach Hoke's presser Joe Reynolds is day to day and Avery is close to being ready to play. I hope when he says close he means Saturday night at 8:00. Funchess just had a cramp if you were worried.
- Derrick Green is now the #2 RB behind Fitz.
- More Drake news: Drake Harris visited A2 on Saturday, he is out a couple weeks with a hamstring issue. RB Mike Weber was also on the sideline.
- Congrats to the new Wolverines in the NFL: Kovacs made the Dolphins practice team, Roh made the practice team for Panthers, Omameh made the 49'ers practice squad, Demens made Arizona's practice squad and Denard and Big Will made the 53 man roster for the Jags and Jets. Mike Cox made the Giants and Junior Hemmingway made KC's 53!
- These guys did not make the team: WR Roy Roundtree (Cincinnati), OG Elliott Mealer (New Orleans), WR Steve Breaston (New Orleans), OL David Molk and Steve Schilling (San Diego), P Zoltan Mesko (New England), WR Braylon Edwards (New York Jets).
- Zoltan has already signed with the Steelers and look for Molk & Schilling to get picked up as well.
- These guys are good: Malik McDowell had 5 TFL's in his first game after transferring to Southfield and Damien Harris 2nd game: 13 carries, 352 yards, 5 TDs, out of game 2 minutes into the 3rd quarter.
