Michigan Wolverines redshirt sophomore forward Jon Horford is week-to-week with a left knee injury he suffered during Michigan's 81-66 win over West Virginia on Saturday. Horford dislocated his kneecap, but it popped back in place and may not sideline him for as long as originally thought.

Coach John Beilein said, "he's going to be out, but we don't know how long. It's a day-to-day, week-to-week and he just has to start rehabbing." Doctors are still examining Horford's knee and determining the severity of the injury.

Horford is averaging 1.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game for the Wolverines. He was limited to nine games last year before suffering a foot injury that ended his season. With Horford out for an indeterminate amount of time, redshirt freshman Max Bielfeldt will see some playing time.

The Wolverines are 11-0 and ranked No. 2 in the nation. They play Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan over the next two weeks before opening Big Ten play at Northwestern on Jan. 3.
