ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan coach Brady Hoke says quarterback Denard Robinson should be healthy enough to play against Minnesota.

Robinson injured a nerve in his right elbow late in the first half of Saturday’s loss at Nebraska. He had a similar injury earlier this month against Illinois.

Hoke said Monday that Robinson’s elbow gets “numb and tingly,” because of the nerve problem and that makes it difficult for the senior to grip the football.

The unranked Wolverines plan to let converted receiver get more snaps at quarterback to compete with Russell Bellomy to be the team’s backup in case Robinson has a setback before — or during — Saturday’s game on the road against the Golden Gophers.
