Denard Robinson's injury leaves status for Senior Day up in the air

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

The Michigan star, who will go down as one of the best players in school history, may be forced to miss his final scheduled game at Michigan Stadium.

Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson has missed the team's last two games with an injured nerve in his throwing elbow, and it's highly possible -- if not likely -- that he will miss the team's final home game of 2012. That would be Robinson's Senior Day, and though Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke is still calling Robinson "day-to-day," there isn't a lot of optimism in Ann Arbor regarding his status.

Robinson hasn't played since getting hurt on Oct. 27 in a loss to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. In his stead, Michigan has been led to two wins by Devin Gardner, who has moved back to quarterback from wide receiver in Robinson's absence. In those two wins, Gardner has thrown for 520 yards and four interceptions.

If Robinson does indeed miss Saturday's game, his last game in front of the home crowd would be Michigan's Oct. 20 victory over the Michigan State Spartans, in which Robinson combined for 259 yards in a 12-10 win.
