ANN ARBOR -- Michigan coach Brady Hoke said today that Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson should be ready to play for Saturday's Big Ten game at Minnesota, and the quarterback will practice this week.

Robinson re-aggravated an injury to the ulnar nerve of his throwing arm late in the first half of Saturday’s 23-9 loss at No. 21 Nebraska.

Robinson’s injury left him unable to properly grip a football Saturday night, but Hoke said Monday that Robinson’s grip was good and that if there was a game on Monday, Robinson would be “close” to being game-ready.

“He should be fine,” Hoke said today during his weekly press conference. “He should be ready to go.”
