LINCOLN, Neb. -- Michigan senior quarterback Denard Robinson left Saturday's 23-9 loss against Nebraska in the second quarter and did not returned after suffering an elbow injury.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Robinson aggravated a nerve injury in his right elbow when he was tackled at the Nebraska 8 late in the first half. Hoke said he did not believe Robinson's injury, which was similar to one that knocked him out for a quarter against Illinois, would keep him out of Saturday's game at Minnesota.

"When he hit it, he hit it the wrong way," Hoke said.

Prior to his injury, Robinson completed 6 of 11 passes for 55 yards and ran 10 times for 46 yards. He was replaced by redshirt freshman Russell Bellomy.

Bellomy was off target on his first 10 passes, and two of his interceptions resulted in 10 Nebraska points.
