Michigan Football @umichfootball •19m
Hoke: Devin Gardner and Shane Morris getting equal snaps in practice; good competition. #UMSpringPractice
Hoke, on Jake Butt returning this season: Haven’t talked to doctors yet; if healthy enough, game 3 or 4 may be feasible. #UMSpringPractice
Hoke: Coming back from break, kids were energized; first full day of pads yesterday. #UMSpringPractice

Hoke says he and Aaron Wellman are very proactive on ACL prevention. ‘A lot of it is bad luck.’
Hoke does says Shane Morris ‘isn’t ready to be the starter at Michigan,’ but he still has time to earn that.
Hoke says snaps between Gardner and Morris are still pretty even. ‘We’ve got really good competition.’
Hoke says Jake Butt could be back by possibly game 3 or 4, but that remains to be seen.
Hoke says Amara Darboh still can’t do everything right now. No live drills.
Brady Hoke says Devin Gardner looks healthier. No signs of foot pain.

Hoke jokes Jordan Kovacs said they’re soft not practicing outside but donor Al Glick said if don’t use facility he’ll put steel in there
Hoke: always been in favor of playing 2 backs but never had a second felt comfortable with… Now have better depth
Hoke: to have jake butt back where you want him could be game three or four
Hoke: Devin Gardner still healthy
Hoke: week off benefited the team
