Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh provided an update on Saturday regarding the status of running back Blake Corum.

Corum suffered a knee injury just before halftime of the Wolverines’ 19-17 win over Illinois on Saturday. Though he came out and was on the field for the second half, Corum only played two snaps. The Wolverines strugled to run the ball and could have used their top running back. So his absence led to concerns about his health.

After the win, Harbaugh addressed Corum’s status.

Harbaugh said that Corum had been cleared to return and that the running back’s knee was structurally good.

Harbaugh added that Corum’s knee was still bothering him, which is why the Wolverines leaned on their backups.

Corum had 108 yards on 18 rushes plus a touchdown before exiting. He added two catches for 39 yards. Backup C.J. Stokes had 11 carries for 36 yards.

Michigan is 11-0 and will face Ohio State in Columbus next weekend. They sure would like to have the focal point of their offense healthy for the game.
