Michigan Injury Report Released; Players Switching Positions

Michigan's injury report for Saturday's game against Penn State doesn't really include any groundbreaking information. The group of players with season-ending injuries -- Mike Jones, Martavious Odoms, Jared Van Slyke, Mike Williams and Troy Woolfolk -- makes up most of the injury report. Actually, the only player with an injury that isn't of the season-ending variety is Fitzgerald Toussaint, who is once again out because of a shoulder issue.

Toussaint has been banged up all season long and continues to struggle to get healthy. He isn't the only running back experiencing injury issues, though. Michael Shaw just now seems to be getting healthy after being banged up the last few weeks and Mike Cox has been dealing with a knee sprain recently. Vincent Smith tore his ACL at the end of last season, but he says he is 100% healthy now.

In addition to releasing the injury report, head coach Rich Rodriguez talked about some position changes during his radio show on Thursday night. Via Angelique Chengelis, the following changes have been made: Quinton Washington has moved from the offensive line to the defensive line, William Campbell has moved from the defensive line to the offensive line, Cameron Gordon is playing at both safety spots, Ray Vinopal is playing at the deep safety spot and Marvin Robinson has moved from safety to linebacker.

Considering how much the defense has struggled so far this season, you might as well try everything to see what works, right?
