Denard Robinson injury: Michigan QB's status for Saturday still unknown

US PRESSWIRE

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson continues to nurse an arm injury and remains questionable for this weekend's game against Northwestern.

Though he has been splitting reps with backup Devin Gardner in practice this week, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson's status for Saturday's game remains up in the air according to Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke.

Hoke went on his weekly radio segment with 97.1 The Ticket's "Stoney and Bill Show" on Thursday, and did not disclose any information about whether his senior quarterback would be able to take the field this weekend, as reported by Tom Millikan of CBS Detroit.

"I don’t know yet," Hoke said. "We’ve got a plan in place and we’ve been running the plan out through the week. The plan is to go out and win a football game."

Robinson was initially ruled the team's projected starter for last week's game against Minnesota, but was then scratched from the lineup a mere minutes before kick off in a surprise twist. Gardner's strong performance against the Gophers likely afforded the junior signal caller the first crack at the job in 2013 at the very least, although it's looking like the team may be forced to turn to him once again with the No. 24 Wildcats coming to town.
