Jim Harbaugh provides injury update on Donovan Edwards ahead of Michigan-Iowa
Michigan heads to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday to face Iowa, looking to improve its record to 5-0. The Wolverines scored 50 or more points in their first 3 games before a 34-27 win over Maryland in Ann Arbor.
Jim Harbaugh’s team, though, has been without Donovan Edwards for a good part of the season. Edwards suffered a leg injury against Hawaii and hasn’t played since, with the sophomore totaling 12 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against Colorado State and taking 3 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown, plus a 33-yard reception, before exiting against the Rainbow Warriors.
Harbaugh, during his weekly radio appearance on Monday, provided some positive news, stating that it’s “possible” Edwards will be able to play against the Hawkeyes. That being said, he didn’t rule out a “heavy workload” for Blake Corum if Edwards remains sidelined.
Corum has had back-to-back monster performances: he ran it in 5 times against UConn on Sept. 17, followed by a 2-touchdown day against Maryland when he had 30 carries for 243 yards. He also had 13 attempts for 76 yards and a touchdown against Colorado State and 9 carries for 88 yards and a score against Hawaii.
