Michigan QB Devin Gardner expected to play in bowl game

Devin Gardner, quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines, has been dealing with a turf toe injury, and as a result, will be out of practice until Thursday the earliest.

From ESPN,

“We’re just trying to be precautionary and get him healthy,” Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said. “He’s a tough guy. … The best medicine for it is to rest so we want to rest him as well as we can.”

 

The redshirt junior is using a walking boot on his left foot as well as crutches as a precautionary measure. Hoke expects Gardner to play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl against Kansas State on Dec. 28.

Practicing in his place will be freshman Shane Morris. However, ESPN has also reported that Russell Bellomy, who is back from a ACL injury, has returned to the practice field as well.

It is expected that Gardner will be back in time to play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, but what if he can’t? Who do you think will take his place, and will he be able to lead the Wolverines to victory? Leave a comment below.
