Roy Roundtree Injury: Michigan WR Ready For Alabama Game

Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree is expected to be ready for the Wolverines' Sept. 1 opener vs. Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, according to the football program's Twitter account.

Roundtree, a senior, should play a big part in Michigan's offense this season, as he has amassed over 1,700 receiving yards during his three-year career, despite falling off a bit as a junior. His best season came as a sophomore in 2010, when he caught 72 passes for 935 yards and seven touchdowns. Roundtree's status for the opening game of the season had previously been in doubt following undergoing knee surgery a couple of weeks ago.

For the third consecutive season, Roundtree is on the preseason watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, which annually honors the nation's top receiver.

The No. 8 Wolverines and the No. 2 Crimson Tide will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Michigan WR Roy Roundtree Undergoes Arthroscopic Knee Surgery, To Return In 2 Weeks

Michigan's leading returning receiver Roy Roundtree had successful arthroscopic surgery on his knee on Friday according to head coach Brady Hoke, and should be back on the practice field at the end of August barring a setback:

Roundtree remains in line to open the season against Alabama on September 1, but may only be able to practice for a handful of days before being thrust into action. Expected to once again serve as the No. 1 pass-catching weapon in quarterback Denard Robinson's offensive arsenal, Roundtree reportedly felt fine after Friday's procedure.

"Everything went great, and he feels great," Hoke told ESPN.com's Michel Rothstein. "It's one of those things he didn't do it practicing. Just needed to get it done and felt it a little bit walking back to the huddle."

With uncertainty surrounding the statuses of Michigan players Fitzgerald Toussaint and Frank Clark for the Alabama game after a pair of offseason arrests, the Wolverines will surely need to hope that Roundtree is fully healthy and capable of being at his best against a stout Crimson Tide secondary.
