Michigan QB Threet doubtful to play vs. Ohio State
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan might be missing some key players at Ohio State.
Coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday he doubts quarterback Steven Threet or running back Sam McGuffie will play against the 10th-ranked Buckeyes.
Rodriguez says Threet has a shoulder injury, and McGuffie had a death in his family.
Running back Brandon Minor says he will play in Michigan's finale after missing a game with rib and shoulder injuries.
Ohio State is a 19-point favorite, matching the largest spread in the rivalry, and is a win away from earning at least a share of a fourth consecutive Big Ten title.
Michigan has lost a school-record eight games in Rodriguez's debut season and will not play in a bowl game for the first time since 1974.
