Michigan Football: Roy Roundtree Expected To Play Vs. Alabama

Michigan receiver Roy Roundtree is expected to be good to go for the Wolverines' opener against Alabama on Sept. 1, head coach Brady Hoke said Thursday afternoon.

Roundtree has his knee scoped on Aug. 10 after injuring it in practice. He is Michigan's most-experienced receiver this season, recording 19 catches for 355 yards and two touchdowns as a junior last year.

From the Detroit Free Press:

"I think (the chances) are good," Hoke said after U-M's 14th practice of preseason camp. "He's with the rehab specialists every day, and we communicate."

Hoke wouldn't give specifics about what threshold Roundtree must meet, other than having the doctors clear him, but teammates said last weekend they expected he would recover in time.
