On Saturday, the University of Michigan suffered a couple of what looks to be serious injuries. First, Chase Winovich was forced to leave the field after being thrown onto his shoulder.
Then it was senior Berkley Edwards (brother of former Wolverine receiver Braylon Edwards) who took a brutal hit to the head by Indiana linebacker Cam Jones.

Following the play, as Berkley laid on the field as the Michigan medical staff prepared him to be taken out on a stretcher, Braylon hopped on Twitter to send prayers for his brother and to relay a little message to Cam Jones.
Come on Berk be ok. I’ll be waiting for Cam Jones’s ass outside the the Tunnel…. #PrayForBerk

It was a very scary scene at the Big House, but according to some preliminary reports, Edwards seems to be ok. He could be seen moving his extremities while lying on the field.
Michigan Radio says preliminary report is that Berkley Edwards is OK, has feeling in his extremities.
Still some stuff to check out, though. But early reports were good.

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.
