Mario Ojemudia will likely play for the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday.

The Michigan Wolverines are hoping to be totally healthy on Saturday against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. All of the buzz is regarding quarterback Denard Robinson, after he was injured against Nebraska. But head coach Brady Hoke has announced that defensive end Mario Ojemudia should be ready to go on Saturday as well, according to the school's official Twitter account.

Ojemudia came up limping in the second quarter in the loss to Nebraska, and was on the sidelines for most of the game. It seems he tweaked his ankle at some point, and returned, but he took limited snaps after that point.

Ojemudia has one sack and a fumble recovery on the season. He's a freshman and is not a starter on the line, coming in for reserve snaps in every game thus far this season. The Wolverines take on the Golden Gophers at noon ET on Saturday, in Minnesota. The game will be on the Big Ten Network.
