Michigan Believes RB Michael Shaw Will Play Vs. MSU

Michigan running back Michael Shaw missed last week’s game against Indiana because of a knee injury, and didn’t practice much on Tuesday. But coach Rich Rodriguez expected Shaw would be able to participate more on Wednesday and is “optimistic” that he’ll be available to play on Saturday versus Michigan State.

Shaw is the Wolverines’ third-leading rusher this season, with 245 yards on 44 carries. His five touchdowns are second on the team.

Fellow running back Fitzgerald Toussaint might not be able to play on Saturday, however. Toussaint hasn’t played since suffering a shoulder injury against Bowling Green and was held out of Tuesday’s practice. Rodriguez said that if Toussaint couldn’t practice on Wednesday, he wouldn’t be able to play against MSU.

Toussaint also missed the first three games of the season, due to an injured knee.
