The Michigan Wolverines have leaned even more on their rushing attack with offensive coordinator, Sherrone Moore taking over as acting head coach while Jim Harbaugh serves his three-game suspension from the sidelines. Still, the Wolverines need their best wide receiver, but Roman Wilson is on the injury report.
Michigan didn’t steamroll Maryland in Week 12 en route to this matchup of undefeated teams in the regular season finale. The Wolverines only won 31-24 and quarterback J.J. McCarthy only threw for 141 yards and an interception, in large part because his No. 1 receiver Roman Wilson went down with an injury.
Wilson is probable to play against Ohio State this week after suffering that injury and only making one catch for 23 yards last week. Wilson is Michigan’s leading receiver and could be the team’s most important player, providing big plays on offense.
This season, Wilson has made 37 catches for 612 yards and a touchdown. He averages 16.5 yards per reception and leads the team in receptions.
Roman Wilson injury status:
Wilson is listed as PROBABLE against Ohio State.
Michigan fans got some great news on Fox Big Noon Kickoff this morning as Jenny Taft reported that J.J. McCarthy is feeling healthy as he continues to rehab a nagging lower-body injury. McCarthy also told Taft that Wilson had a “great week of practice” leading up to The Game. It sounds like Wilson will be 100% and ACTIVE today.
Taft’s report was positive for multiple Wolverines on the injury front. She confirmed that Ladarius Henderson will start at left tackle, Myles Hinton will be available, and linebacker Michael Barrett is good to go after suffering a sprained AC joint against Maryland.
