Last week against Iowa, the Michigan coaching staff revealed a twist to the offense which had never been seen before in the capacity that it was used: Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner on the field at the same time, with Gardner under center instead of Denard.

Denard Robinson is healthy enough to play, but can't seem to do more than lightly lob a short pass.
So, is there any chance Robinson will go back to being the team's QB on Saturday at Ohio State?

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan fans and players don't know if Denard Robinson will start at quarterback Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
