When No. 3 Michigan takes on No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday at noon, the Wolverines are going to need all hands on deck if they are going to want to defeat the Buckeyes for a second-straight season. As you know, everything is on the line for both teams as the winner will advance to the Big Ten Championship, and control their own destiny when it comes to the College Football Playoff. Just moments ago, an ESPN insider revealed the status of injured Michigan RB Donovan Edwards.
Will Michigan RB Donovan Edwards play vs. Ohio State?
According to a report from Pete Thamel of ESPN, Edwards, who is dealing with a hand injury, is expected to play on Saturday against Ohio State.
Michigan's backup tailback, the dynamic sophomore Donovan Edwards, is also expected to attempt a return after suffering a hand injury. Edwards missed the Illinois game last week and a majority of the Nebraska game the weekend before, when he was limited to two carries because of the injury.
Edwards' effectiveness because of the hand issue will be monitored closely, as he is a dynamic part of Michigan's passing offense. Edwards is averaging 12.8 yards per catch on 14 receptions this year. Two of his six touchdowns this season have come through the air.
