As Michigan continues to prepare for their upcoming game against Army, a report has surfaced that Wolverines’ starting QB Shea Patterson was hurt on the first play of the game this past Saturday against Middle Tennessee State.
The report, which is from Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, adds that Patterson should be ready to go “full force” this coming Saturday against Army. Miller also noted that Patterson “couldn’t use lower body throughout the game.”
Sources tell me Michigan’s Shea Patterson was hurt on the first play of the game against MTSU and should be ready to go “full force” this week. Couldn’t use lower body throughout the game, but should be ready to go barring any setbacks.

As you can see in the video below, Patterson was hit pretty hard on the first play of the game, which caused the reported injury.
As far as Patterson not being able to use his lower body throughout the game against Middle Tennessee State, I am not so sure about that as he seemed to move around pretty well and even carried the ball 8 more times after the fumble.
