Denard Robinson could make a brief appearance in Michigan's senior day game.

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is still dealing with an right elbow injury that kept him out of the Wolverines' overtime win over Northwestern last Saturday. His availability for the Wolverines' senior day game against Iowa this Saturday is still up in the air. Michigan head football coach isn't ruling out Robinson making at least a brief appearance in the game, though.

“That would be something I would think about,” Hoke said. “But to be honest with you, the seniors and the guys and the people who are truly Michigan fans, I think they understand the significance he’s had.” 

He also didn’t rule out using Robinson at a position other than quarterback, saying, “I don’t know. The health of him and all those things are the things we’re concerned about.”

The decision to play a still-injured Robinson this Saturday may come down to whether or not it could interfere with the healing process enough to endanger his availability for next week's showdown against Ohio State. For a Wolverine senior, his last chance to beat the Buckeyes might be even a bigger deal than playing in the senior day game.
