J.T. Floyd might be broken (update)


November 3, 2010
Get used to this.

Various reports indicate that redshirt sophomore cornerback J.T. Floyd broke his ankle in practice.  If true, this would presumably eliminate him from competition for the remainder of the season.

Michigan’s depth chart at cornerback is now:

1. James Rogers, senior
2. Terrence Talbott, freshman
3. Cullen Christian, freshman
4. Courtney Avery, freshman

This is why it would be a good idea to keep around guys like Justin Turner.  Or make sure that your star defensive back recruit (Demar Dorsey) has good enough grades to get into college.  Michigan now has only 32 healthy scholarship players on the defensive side of the ball, and that includes Mike Martin, whose bum ankles don’t exactly make him healthy.

UPDATE: Rivals is reporting that X-rays of Floyd’s ankle were negative, but is likely out for at least this weekend’s game against Illinois.

    Your gloating is really disgusting. You have no fricking clue about why Justin Turner left, or if he would be contributing at all.
    There are a group of players that are working hard to get better. They're on the team, and support them, don't pine for the guys who didn't have the guts to stay and instead bailed.

    @ Michael S

    How am I not supporting the current guys? Attrition has been eating away at this team for three years. Now we're left with overmatched true freshmen because Rodriguez can't figure out a way to keep kids from leaving.

    And how am I gloating? I'm not exactly proud that Michigan is in such rough shape. I mean, I spend a good deal of time reading and writing about Michigan football. It's not fun to learn that this team is getting further and further behind with injuries.
