Michigan Tuesday: Jimmy Speaks

Jimmy did his regular in season Monday press conference yesterday and did drop a few nuggets, good and bad.

  • Andrew Stueber who had been rumored to have a minor knee injury, has a major one in a torn ACL and will be out the entire season.   Hello Jalen Mayfield and the RT competition ended without a competition.  Ryan Hayes is the back-up at both Tackle positions.   This could be major as its rumored Jon Runyan Jr. has a bit of a back issue.

  • Ambry Thomas is getting better and could even play some on Saturday.  I expect we will see him in the Army game at the earliest.  

  • They haven't decided who the starting RB is yet, which means they have a number of good options. 

  • Jimmy sees maybe 12 freshman playing this year including Dax Hill, Mazi Smith, DJ Turner, Chris Hinton, Zach Charbonnet, Erik All, CJ Johnson, and Giles Jackson.   Many guys will be on special teams. 
  • Taco Charlton had maybe his best pre-season game of his career on Saturday for the Cowboys.  
  • Chad Henne broke his ankle and won't be the back-up for Pat Mahomes anytime soon. 

  • 2020 5 star basketball guard Jaden Springer will be visiting Michigan and new coach Juwan Howard this weekend. 

  • Jordan released another Michigan sneaker yesterday.  It will be a limited quantity at the MDen and Finish Line.
