Michigan starting quarterback Denard Robinson has left the game against Alabama with his second injury of the game. Early in the first quarter, Robinson threw an interception to Alabama corner Dee Milliner before making a reckless tackle. Robinson threw his body into Milliner in frustration after launching the interception and he came up with a wounded shoulder. Robinson went over to the sideline and immediately called for his backup but Robinson went right back into the game.
The injury was to Robinson’s throwing shoulder.
Now, in the third quarter, Robinson extended for a first down and stayed down on the ground in obvious pain. Robinson suffered a back injury while he was going for the extra yards. He was immediately taken to the tunnel to evaluate his injury. He was evaluated by the team’s trainer and cleared before trotting back to the sideline.
Michigan currently trails Alabama 31-7 late in the third quarter. It isn’t the start to the season that the Wolverines had hoped for.
