Found November 03, 2012 on Fox Sports Detroit:
Quarterback Denard Robinson will not play for Michigan in Saturday's game against Minnesota, coach Brady Hoke announced just before kickoff. Robinson missed the second half of last week's loss to Nebraska with a nerve injury in his throwing elbow. He tried to warm up before the Minnesota game, but threw only a few passes. Devin Gardner, who has spent the entire season at wide receiver, will start at quarterback in place of freshman Russell Bellomy, who struggled badly against the Cornhuskers.
