Michigan injury report: Forcier, Brown probable

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier and running back Carlos Brown are both listed as probable for Saturday's game against Delaware State (Big Ten Network, noon ET) after dealing with concussions.

Here's Michigan's full injury report, issued Thursday night.


  • C David Molk, foot

  • CB Zac Johnson, shoulder

PROBABLE (75 percent chance of playing)

  • QB Tate Forcier, concussion

  • RB Carlos Brown, concussion

Forcier, who sustained a mild concussion in the fourth quarter of last week's loss to Iowa, returned to practice Wednesday. Head coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday that if healthy, Forcier will make his seventh straight start at quarterback. This is certainly not the game to take many chances with Forcier, and Michigan would be wise to get backup Denard Robinson a good chunk of playing time no matter what. Senior Brandon Minor likely will get the start at running back, but it appears as though Brown, who didn't travel for the Iowa game after sustaining a concussion last week in practice, will be on the field as well.

Rodriguez named defensive end Brandon Graham, kicker Jason Olesnavage, linebacker Ohene Opong-Owusu and left tackle Mark Ortmann as the Wolverines' game captains for Saturday.
