Jim Harbaugh has injury update on Michigan LB Josh Ross for Wisconsin game
Michigan could be getting some help at linebacker this week.
Senior linebacker Josh Ross is “probable” for the Wolverines’ game against Wisconsin this week, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. Ross left Michigan’s Week 4 game against Rutgers with an apparent leg injury, but it doesn’t sound too serious.

Ross is Michigan’s leading tackler with 29 total tackles — which also puts him 11th in the B1G. He’s a captain and a big part of the Wolverines’ defensive attack, which also features star linebacker Aidan Hutchinson.
Having Ross back in the fold will be big for the Wolverines as they take on a Wisconsin team that struggled mightily on offense against Notre Dame. Last week, Michigan led Rutgers 20-3 at halftime but ended up winning 2013 after Ross missed the second half with his injury.
Michigan and Wisconsin will face off Saturday in Madison at noon ET on FOX.
