It was not pretty but Michigan eventually got the job done in a 31-20 win over Indiana at the Big House.
The Wolverines may have escaped with a win but that does not mean they left the stadium unscathed.
Following the conclusion of the game, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media about some of the injuries suffered.
First, Berkley Edwards, who took a big hit to the head on a kickoff in the fourth quarter.

On Thursday, many were surprised that Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia made the decision to have his team practice in the snow. Most of the criticism was based on the fact the Lions next three games will be played at Ford Field and their fourth will be played in Arizona.
Today, Patricia spoke to the media and be began with a prepared statement about his decision to practice in the snow. It was pretty clear he was not thrilled with the media for their criticisms.
Via the Detroit Free Press:
“In regards to practice, a couple comments I just want to make on this topic and provide some maybe insight and let’s call it closure to this continual conversation that we have here as far as our training. First, we’ll always practice and train in a manner that looks out for our players’ ability to prepare each week for our opponent, while also taking care of and including all the parameters to the overall health and safety of our team. Indoor walk-throughs, which we had this week, which we’ve also had in the past, are always beneficial to our team, it’s beneficial to our players. It’s a great teaching and learning environment. It’s an opportunity for us to pull off them physically, the demands of practice and the overall hustle and pursuit of what we have to do during the course of a practice and our movements.
