ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he's not giving daily updates on Denard Robinson.

That leaves everyone — including Northwestern — waiting until Saturday to see if the quarterback is healthy enough to play.

Hoke said last week he fully expected Robinson to play at Minnesota only to leave him on the sideline because of an injured right elbow.

The Wolverines found out that Devin Gardner could lead them to a win. The junior QB, who moved to receiver this year to get on the field, flourished in his first start under center in a 35-13 victory over the Golden Gophers.

Michigan (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten) might have to lean again on Gardner against the Wildcats (7-2, 3-2) on Saturday at home.
