While it remains uncertain whether Michigan quarterback Brandon Peters will be able to play against Ohio State on Saturday, Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh was encouraged by what he heard from the doctors on Monday.
During his weekly radio show on Monday night, Harbaugh said Peters – who is in concussion protocol after suffering a head injury against Wisconsin on Saturday – is feeling "50 percent better" and has "made great strides in the last 24 hours."
"There's that hope, of course (that he can be cleared to play against Ohio State on Saturday)," Harbaugh said, according to Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News. "It's totally in the doctors' hands. You hope for the best and we prepare both ways, that he'll be there or next man up."
John O'Korn is expected to start at quarterback for the Wolverines if Peters is unable to play in Saturday's game.
