Michigan WR Junior Hemingway practiced Tuesday with large wrap on right arm

The Michigan football team's second-leading receiver, Junior Hemingway, practiced with a large wrap on his right arm Tuesday.

The senior, who has battled injuries throughout his career but remained healthy this season, still received punts during the 20-minute window available to the media. That is his normal routine.

Hemingway has 10 receptions for 267 yards and one touchdown this year. Redshirt sophomore Jeremy Gallon is the only Wolverine with more catches (12) than Hemingway, but Gallon is averaging more than 10 yards less per reception.

The No. 12 Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) play their next game Saturday at Northwestern (2-2, 0-1). The game kicks off at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast by the Big Ten Network.

Other practice notes:
• Junior left guard Ricky Barnum did not warm up with his position group. He did not play against Minnesota after twisting his ankle the previous week against San Diego State. Coach Brady Hoke said Barnum is "a day-to-day deal."

• Sophomore starter Cam Gordon, who has yet to play this year with a bad back, warmed up with the linebackers. That has been his usual routine, despite not seeing game time.

• Senior cornerback Troy Woolfolk competed in all drills.

Practice video: sports reporter Nick Baumgardner captured the following video during the open portion of practice:

Maybe some fans of that school in ohio can come on this thread and give us a hard time because Hemmingway's arm is wrapped, they'll claim we can never win without him and our season will be over. Yeah TSIO fan base they're a fun bunch. As far as Hemmingway is concerned, to coin a phrase,"I'm sure it's just a little boo boo"
