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)
  • DT Greg Banks, foot
PROBABLE (75 percent chance of playing)
  • Zac Johnson, shoulder
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.

Michigan has issued its official injury report for Saturday night's clash at No. 12 Iowa (ABC, 8 p.m. ET).

  • CB Zac Johnson, shoulder
  • C David Molk, foot

The good news here is no Carlos Brown. Michigan's leading rusher missed practice Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, but he doesn't appear on the injury report. Mgoblog reported earlier today that Brown sustained a head injury during practice this week and is very doubtful for the game, so we'll see if he plays against Iowa. Senior running back Brandon Minor is getting healthier and could take on a greater carries load if Brown can't go. Brown leads Michigan with 336 rush yards and three touchdowns on 44 carries (7.6 yards per carry), while Minor has rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 35 carries (5.1 ypc).

Wolverines linebacker Stevie Brown, offensive lineman Tim McAvoy, offensive lineman David Moosman and defensive end Tim North will serve as game captains.
