View from practice: The Michigan football team is healthier after off week
The Michigan football team is getting healthy.
Coach Brady Hoke said this week being idle on Saturday was tough for the No. 17 Wolverines (6-1, 2-1) because they are coming off a loss to Michigan State, but also good for them because several players were able to rest up.
That showed Tuesday, as several players who have missed action participated in the team's first full practice of the week. (See video from practice.)
• Sophomore left tackle Taylor Lewan also participated in practice after forgoing drills last week because of an injured wrist and ankle. His ankle was taped, but did not appear to be wearing heavy protection on his wrist.
• Sophomore safety Marvin Robinson, who did not dress for the past two games because of an unknown injury, practiced with his teammates during the 20 minutes available to the media.
• Senior cornerback Troy Woolfolk, who played only one series in Michigan's 28-14 loss to Michigan State, was not wearing any protection on the hand he broke before the Notre Dame game, nor the ankle he sprained in the opener against Western Michigan.
