Michigan running backs Chris Evans and Khalid Hill practiced Wednesday and could be available for Saturday’s game at Michigan State.

Evans suffered a concussion early in the Illinois game last week, and Hill left the game late with an undisclosed injury.

“(Evans) practiced (Wednesday) and we’ll come back today and see where he is, if he has anymore symptoms,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh told the “Jamie and Stoney” show Thursday morning on 97.1 (WXYT-FM). “But he was symptom-free (Wednesday) and looked like Chris. He looked good, but you come back the next day and see how they feel after a practice.”

The freshman leads the team in rushing with 416 yards and has three touchdowns.

Hill, a fullback who has eight touchdowns on 25 yards, also practiced Wednesday, Harbaugh told the show.

“You look to see what they’re like the day after a practice,” he said.
