Michigan’s Robinson is expected to play Saturday
Coach Rich Rodriguez expects star quarterback
Denard Robinson to be ready for practice this week when 19th-ranked Michigan begins preparations for Saturday’s Big Ten Conference opener at Indiana.
Robinson injured his knee during the Wolverines’ 65-21 victory over Bowling Green on Saturday.
“Denard should be fine. He’s got a bruise,” Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez added that the sophomore should be ready for Tuesday’s practice.
Robinson was injured on the first play of Michigan’s third offensive series when he was tackled after a 47yard run. He had already run for two touchdowns on the Wolverines’ first two possessions.
After being evaluated on the sideline and again at halftime, Robinson was cleared to return. Michigan, however, already had a big lead and Rodriguez elected to keep him on the sideline.
Demps likely to play against Alabama
Florida running back Jeff
Demps is wearing a boot for a sprained left foot, but Coach Urban Meyer expects him to be ready to play Saturday against top-ranked Alabama.
Demps injured his foot Sept. 18 at Tennessee when one of Florida’s offensive linemen stepped on it.
He played Saturday against Kentucky but carried the ball only eight times.
Rainey’s charge may be dismissed
Florida receiver Chris
Rainey could have a stalking charge against him dropped if he stays out of trouble for the next six months.
As a condition of the deferred prosecution, he has to stay out of trouble for six months, complete 10 hours of community service and attend counseling. If Rainey meets the conditions and does not get into legal trouble in the next six months, the charge will be dismissed.
Rainey was arrested Sept. 14 on an aggravated stalking charge for allegedly sending a woman he had dated sporadically threatening text messages.
