Michigan Vs. UMass: Fitzgerald Toussaint Should Play

Michigan was without a couple players for the first two games of the season because of injuries, but it looks like one of them will make his 2010 debut this Saturday against UMass.

Redshirt freshman Fitzgerald Toussaint, who missed the first two games of the year with a knee injury, looks like he’ll be available when Michigan faces Football Championship Subdivision school Massachusetts on Saturday (noon, Big Ten Network).

"I don’t know how much he will play," Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said on a teleconference Wednesday afternoon. "But he should be healthy enough to play."

Wide receiver Junior Hemingway, who also missed the first two weeks of the season, is once again doubtful because of a hamstring injury. He has experienced quite a few injuries during his career, but he will add even more depth to the wide receiver position when he is able to play.

Another injured player, Carvin Johnson, has been out since midway through the UConn game. He sprained his MCL and didn't play against Notre Dame, and it looks as though he will be out this week as well. There's not a set timetable for his return, but he won't be back until the Bowling Green game at the earliest.
