Michigan injury report: Odoms out
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
Michigan has issued its official injury report for Saturday's home game against Purdue (Big Ten Network, noon ET).
QUESTIONABLE (50 percent chance of playing)
PROBABLE (75 percent chance of playing)
Odoms has been hobbled since the Penn State game, when he sprained his knee. Roy Roundtree will get the start at slot receiver after leading Michigan with four receptions for 92 yards last week at Illinois. The good news for Michigan is no Brandon Minor on the report. Head coach Rich Rodriguez said Wednesday that Minor is getting healthier after fighting ankle/foot problems all season. Minor is Michigan's biggest offensive threat when healthy, so his presence looms large. Rodriguez named linebacker Stevie Brown, defensive end Tim North, left tackle Mark Ortmann and slot receiver Ricky Reyes as game captains. Ortmann faced no punishment from Michigan or the Big Ten after being involved in an incident with Illinois' Corey Liuget last week.
