Hoke confirms Robinson has elbow injury, should be okay for Minnesota

Things went south quickly against Nebraska Saturday night when Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson left in the first half with an elbow injury. The Wolverines couldn’t muster any offense with backup Russell Bellomy and the Cornhuskers went on to win 23-9.

Thankfully for Michigan, Robinson’s injury likely won’t result in any missed time. Brady Hoke confirmed after the game that Robinson had  re-aggrevation a nerve injury in his right (throwing) arm, an injury he originally suffered a few weeks back against Illinois.

“He’s got that nerve (injury), he hits it the wrong way (or) gets hit,” Hoke said. “The difference was he didn’t come back in. But, he gets better as the game goes on.”

Hoke added that he didn’t think Robinson would be unavailable for next weekend’s game at Minnesota.

Saturday’s loss puts Michigan on the wrong end of a tiebreaker with Nebraska for Legends Division race.

    If Denard isn’t able to go, why not put Garner back in as QB. He couldn’t be any worse than the kid last night. AND PLEASEEEEEE LET RAWLS PLAY! He’s better than our other two backs together. Rawls is a stud, and yet Borges has him sitting on the bench while we lose last night and almost lost to MSU. Even I can figure out we’re wasting a powerhouse back by not playing him. Geesh you’re lame, Borges!!!!!!!!!

    Amen, Gardner showed flashes of promise in his limited time. Bellomy showed NOTHING yesterday. Why isn’t Gardner getting reps?

    I agree Gardner is a talent, he has a rifle of an arm. I hope that next year with d-rob gone that they do something at qb as it looks as one of the biggest weaknesses we have.

    Agreed on all fronts…

    I’m starting to feel about Borges the way The Corn felt about Shawn Watson. There is WAY more talent on the Michigan offense than is being taken advantage of.

    Let’s call it what it is… Lazy Offensive coaching… which is… Offensive, not ‘Conservative’.

    1) How do you not get your back up QB better prepared than that? Seriously???
    2) Fitz is a flyback with average-at-best field vision, whom they continue to try to pound. Tired of watching 1st and 2nd downs squandered to gain 3 yards. Seriously???

    In Hoke We Trust… In Borges, NOT so much.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Hoke and Borges don’t want Gardner in at QB because he’s not one of “their guys,” but a holdover from RR. Maybe they should remind themselves that so is Denard — and without Denard, they’ve shown us NOTHING on offense, but bad decisions and bad play-calling.

    I thought last year was the beginning of bitchigans big10 dominance lmao. Osu had there worst record in 100 years and u still barely got by us for the 1st time in 10 years. Cant wait to watch Tosu destroy the school up north

    I guess that pre-season top 10 ranking was a bit….premature.

    They’ll probably win their next 3 games and MI Nation will be pumping their fists in the air again. Right up to a smack down by the Suckeyes.

    Maybe they will bring out a real wolverine to the game and sick him on brutus (scare the gay right out of him).

    Agree with most that has been posted above, but I am impessed with our defense, and I’m basing this on the fact we held ND to 13 points and not everyone else has.
    If we’re going to stick with Belomy (spelling?) – get the kid some more practice time. He was horrible – even the passes that were caught were terrible.
