Frank Clark expected back against Minnesota after missing Nebraska game with ankle injury
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Before Michigan lost Denard Robinson, it lost Frank Clark.
Robinson's second-quarter nerve injury was a major factor in the Wolverines' 23-9 loss Saturday at Nebraska, but Clark's absence hurt as well.
The weak-side defensive end didn't make the trip to Lincoln after suffering an ankle injury.
The good news: Coach Brady Hoke said after the game that Clark is expected to play next week at Minnesota.
"He should be all right," Hoke said. "He just banged up an ankle."
Sophomore Brennen Beyer started at weak-side defensive end, as he did the previous two weeks, and true freshman Mario Ojemudia absorbed Clark's reserve snaps.
Ojemudia made the most of it, intercepting Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez on the first drive of the second half.
Beyer had four tackles.
