Updates on injuries for Michigan: Michael Barrett, Roman Wilson, and the injured O-line.

MD COLLEGE PARK: Michael Barrett captured the essence of Michigan’s hard-fought victory over Maryland better than anyone else.

The left shoulder of the sixth-year linebacker, which was injured in the second quarter of the Wolverines’ 31-24 victory, was wrapped in ice when he arrived in the media room for Saturday’s postgame news conference.

For a team that has been remarkably healthy this season, three Michigan players left the game injured; Barrett (four tackles, sack) was the only one to return.

Barrett informed reporters, “I just have a little AC (joint) sprain in my shoulder.” “On one of the plays, I was attempting a tackle when I kind of got hit.” Someone entered the room and struck my shoulder somewhat.

Barrett claims he “got it looked at, got it padded up and went back out there,” after leaving the pitch right away for X-rays. Nothing is too big for Tylenol.

In other news, Michigan’s offence saw the loss of two starters in the middle of the game: tackle Myles Hinton and receiver Roman Wilson. They did not return, so it is unknown how they will fare against Ohio State the following week.

• Hinton, who was already starting tackle LaDarius Henderson, sustained a knee injury that resulted in “no structural damage or anything,” according to acting head coach Sherrone Moore.

• Regarding Henderson, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for Michigan, Moore stated that the starting left tackle was being held out as a precaution. Moore stated, “I believe he’ll be back next week.”

 

After Hinton was sidelined, Karsen Barnhart, the starting right tackle, moved to the left tackle position, and Trente Jones was placed on the right side.

It will take ten o-linemen to go win this entire thing and accomplish our goals, as Moore mentioned when speaking with the o-line at the start of the season. “Trente entered there and performed admirably. He is a player who could start, so there was no wiggle room regarding who would start.

• Wilson, who left the game in the first quarter due to a severe hit on a 23-yard reception, is still a mystery. He headed straight for the locker room and then the sideline medical tent after the game. Shortly after, he came out of the locker room and, according to Moore, “trainers ruled him out.” He watched the remainder of the game in street clothes.

The coach went on, “which is the responsible thing for us to do as a medical staff.” “They always stay on top of things, especially when it involves the head.”

Otherwise, Michigan’s pregame player availability report was surprisingly clear-cut, with the exception of reserve running back Danny Hughes.
