Jim Harbaugh updates status of injured Michigan WR Tarik Black
Michigan received some bad news over the weekend. Wide receiver Tarik Black suffered a right foot injury during practice on Saturday, leaving one of the team’s top pass-catchers sidelined for an indefinite period of time.
During his press conference on Monday, head coach Jim Harbaugh updated Black’s status after the injury, and it sounds like the receiver will miss a substantial amount of time.
“Some weeks,” Harbaugh said when asked about how long Black will be out. “Very similar injury this year to the other foot. The good news is both [feet] will be fixed this year.”

Black suffered a left foot injury last season, which kept him out for the final 10 games of the season.
In 2017, Black caught 11 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown while appearing in three games for the Wolverines. He was expected to be one of the team’s primary targets in the passing game this fall.
