Ann Arbor — Michigan has eagerly anticipated the return to full strength of receiver Tarik Black, and he is coming along since breaking his right foot a week before the season opener.
Black returned to the field against Michigan State on Oct. 20 and has since been limited in his presence. There are some limitations in terms of particular routes. He did not have a catch last week at Rutgers.
“Progressing good,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday “Fully engaged with the trainers and with him on the things he can do and keep progressing more. Certain types of routes we’re just saying, ‘OK, maybe that’s not as good.’ Puts more pressure on that outside part of his foot. He’s become more confident with it and coaches have done a really good job working with the doctors and trainers without making unacceptable risks.”
Michigan cornerback Lavert Hill, who went to the locker room before halftime at Rutgers last Saturday, in concussion protocol, Harbaugh said at his weekly news conference.
“Being evaluated,” Harbaugh said of Hill.
Defensive lineman Aubrey Solomon, who got sick late last week and did not go to Rutgers should be fine.
“it’s cold and flu season,” Harbaugh said. “Get your flu shots.”
Defensive end Kwity Paye also is expected to play Saturday against Indiana in the Wolverines’ final regular-season home game.
“He should be good,” Harbaugh said. “Got hit on the funny bone, had never been hit on the funny bone before. Scary first time that happens.”
