Jim Harbaugh updates Michigan soccer player injuries after Indiana
ANN ARBOR, Michigan – The injury virus hit Michigan football hard on Saturday night when it faced Indiana. Although there have been big injuries throughout the year – from Ronnie Bell in the season opener to Trevor Keegan and Zak Zinter missing some time from Erick All and Donovan Edwards not playing on Saturday – several more key players came out against the Hoosiers.
Collectively, Jim Harbaugh is confident the team will return healthier next week when they travel to Penn State.
“Improve some guys health next week and have a great days,” Harbaugh said. “The good days will be the goal now as we move forward on the right path. Have a good dating day, have a good training day, and then go play the game.
Saturday’s big injury was to Blake Corum, who left the game and the sidelines and returned in street clothes and a walking boot.
Harbaugh says he’s not sure the extent of his injury, but he doesn’t imagine it’s anything serious at this point.
“We’ll see. After the game I talked to him a little bit,” Harbaugh said. “I don’t know how – I don’t think it’s serious, I don’t know if it’s light. is somewhere less than serious – we’ll see.
But he wasn’t the only one.
Gemon Green, Andrel Anthony and AJ Henning also left the game in the second half with injuries and did not return. But Harbaugh thinks there’s a good chance they’ll be back next week as well.
“Yeah, there were a few guys who were out of that game and I think we’re going to come back, get healthier next week,” Harbaugh said. “Just do a good job putting a good day on top of the good day as we prepare for Penn State.
” I have good hope ! I don’t know for sure. If they can heal like the Green brothers – those two Green brothers, Gemon and German Green, I’ve been with them for four years now, and no one I’ve ever seen in football heals faster than the Green brothers. It’s amazing, it’s amazing. So hopefully I know the Greens will! I am confident of it!
As for the quarterback, Harbaugh notes that Cade McNamara has made the injury he suffered at Michigan State somewhat worse – although it appears there is more to it than that.
Cade came in and out of play intermittently, especially in the second half, which meant more playing time for real freshman JJ McCarthy.
