Michigan might give injured Denard Robinson a play on Senior Day

It's Thursday, which means that it's time for Michigan coach Brady Hoke not to tell you anything about whether Denard Robinson is going to play for Michigan this week. It has been a weekly ritual since Robinson injured his elbow against Nebraska.

However, this week is a bit different.

Michigan's game against Iowa this Saturday will be the Wolverines' final home game, which means it's Senior Day in Ann Arbor. And while Hoke wouldn't say whether Robinson or Devin Gardner would start at quarterback, he did say he'd consider the idea of giving Robinson at least one play if he's too injured to start.

“That would be something I would think about,” Hoke told the Stoney and Bill Show. “But to be honest with you, the seniors and the guys and the people who are truly Michigan fans, I think they understand the significance he’s had.”

Earlier this week, Hoke said the emotion of the day won't have anything to do with whether Robinson will play, saying "his health is what it will have to do with."

Of course, who knows how seriously we should take Hoke when he says that. After all, it was only a few weeks ago that he said Robinson would probably start against Minnesota and that never happened.

Will Robinson start Saturday? Will he play? Odds are we won't find out until Saturday.
