ANN ARBOR -- Denard Robinson is expected to play Saturday as Michigan takes on Minnesota.
Robinson missed the second half of last weekend's 23-9 loss to Nebraska after aggravating a nerve injury in his elbow. He was replaced by Russell Bellomy, who went 3-for-16 with three interceptions, allowing the Cornhuskers to pull away for the key LegendsDivision victory.
"He should be fine, he should be ready to go," Brady Hoke said in his Monday press conference. "If we didn't think he could practice all week, he wouldn't expect him to play."
Hoke said that Devin Gardner will get more snaps at quarterback in case Robinson has a setback, but that he expects Robinson to be at quarterback against the Golden Gophers with Gardner at wide receiver.
Michigan dropped out of the AP Top 25 with the 23-9 loss to Nebraska, but it is still tied with the Cornhuskers for first place in the Legends Division. However, with Nebraska holding the tiebreaker due to Saturday's win, Michigan's fate is no longer inits own hands.
