Raymon Taylor injury: Brady Hoke expects Michigan CB to play this week

Jonathan Daniel

Raymon Taylor is expected to return this week after missing much of the fourth quarter against Michigan State with an arm injury.

Raymon Taylor has been leaned on heavily by the Michigan Wolverines coaching staff this season ever since fellow starting cornerback Blake Countess was lost to a knee injury in the season-opener. The Wolverines believe that will continue to be the case this week, too, as head coach Brady Hoke expected Taylor to be available this weekend.

Hoke said on Monday that he expects his sophomore cornerback to play this week for the Wolverines in their game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers despite missing the end of last week's game with an arm injury.

"I think he'll be fine, I really do," Hoke told Nick Baumgardner of MLive.

Taylor initially suffered the injury early in the fourth quarter of last weekend's game against the Michigan State Spartans after getting tangled up with Bennie Fowler. Junior backup Courtney Avery replaced Taylor for the rest of the game.

The Wolverines are ranked third in the nation in yards allowed per game, with Taylor being a big factor in that ranking considering he's picked up 25 tackles and is tied for the team lead with a pair of interceptions.
