Roman Wilson receives status update for rest of Week 12 game
Roman Wilson had a big catch for Michigan in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Maryland. However, that’s all Wilson will deliver in this game.
While reeling in his 23-yard catch, he sustained a big hit that was initially flagged for targeting. Upon review, officials waved off the flag, but Wilson was dinged up on the play and eventually went back to the locker room.
In the second quarter, Wilson was spotted on Michigan’s sideline in street clothes, a clear indication his time for Week 12 is done. FOX’s Jenny Taft reported that the decision is precautionary in nature.

“As you guys have already pointed out, Roman Wilson is in street clothes on the sideline. Now I’ve been told this is more of a precautionary decision given the score right now and the big game that we’ve got lurking next week,” said Taft.
Since Wilson left the game, Michigan has rattled off 23 unanswered points for a 23-3 lead late in the first half. He is the team’s leading receiver with 36 catches for 589 yards and 10 touchdowns, but Wilson’s status for next week is crucial.
After the game vs. Maryland, Michigan will prepare for the season-ending rivalry vs. Ohio State in The Game. Having Wilson available will be a huge key for the offense.
