Michigan Vs. Iowa: Martavious Odoms Out With Broken Foot; Other Injury News

Michigan lost more than a football game this past Saturday, as Martavious Odoms, one of the top receivers on the team, went down with a broken foot. He was carted to the locker room from the sideline during the second half and will miss "extended time."

"Like we need another injury," Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday at his weekly news conference. "Not sure how (the injury) happened. It will be extended time for him being out." Rodriguez said it isn't clear whether Odoms' injury is season-ending.

The news isn't much better for running back Fitzgerald Toussaint, who has seen only two plays in his entire Michigan career. He got in for two carries against Bowling Green and proceeded to bang up his shoulder (specifically he has a rotator cuff injury), which will keep him from playing for at least another week.

On a more positive note, David Molk, Mike Martin and James Rogers should all be good to go on Saturday against Iowa. Molk and Martin suffered ankle sprains against MSU but "should be fine." Rogers had to be carted off to the locker room after experiencing severe cramps but will be able to practice without limitation this week.
