Denard Robinson injury: Michigan QB to appear even if he can't play full game?

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

Even if Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson isn't healthy, he may get one snap as a senior day tribute.

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke hasn't announced whether or not quarterback Denard Robinson will be healthy enough to play against Iowa on Saturday. But even if Robinson can't go, he may get one snap so Wolverine fans can show their appreciation on senior day:

"That would be something I would think about," Hoke said. "But to be honest with you, the seniors and the guys and the people who are truly Michigan fans, I think they understand the significance he's had."

Robinson sustained an ulnar nerve injury in his elbow injury during Michigan's 23-9 loss at Nebraska on Oct. 27, and he hasn't played since. Junior Devin Gardner started against Minnesota and Northwestern and completed 28 of 47 passes for 520 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in two Wolverine wins.

While Hoke hasn't given any indication that Robinson could start against Iowa, he hasn't ruled out the senior, either:

"I don't know. The health of him and all those things are the things we're concerned about."

Michigan and Iowa meet Saturday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, and the Wolverine must win to keep any hope of a Legends Division title alive. Kickoff is set for noon ET, and the game will be televised by ESPN.
