Michigan injury report: Shaw probable
By ESPN.com staff
No. 18 Michigan has issued its official injury report for Saturday's home showdown against No. 17 Michigan State.
- LB Mike Jones, leg
- RB Fitzgerald Toussaint, shoulder
- S Jared Van Slyke, clavicle (out for season)
- S Mike Williams, head
- CB Troy Woolfolk, ankle (out for season)
Good news on Shaw, who missed last week's game at Indiana as Michigan had to go with one running back (Vincent Smith) not counting Denard Robinson. Although the Wolverines would have benefited from getting Toussaint back as well, it looks like Shaw will return against the Spartans. If Michigan can diversify its rushing attack with both Smith and Shaw and allow Robinson to attack a vulnerable Michigan State secondary through the air, the Wolverines will be tough to stop. Michigan certainly could use Williams back in the secondary as soon as possible.
