Update on Berkley Edwards: Early indications are positive
During the fourth quarter of Michigan football’s game against Indiana on Saturday at Michigan Stadium, running back Berkley Edwards suffered what seemed to be a serious injury.
While blocking for a kickoff in the fourth quarter, Edwards was hit, helmet to helmet, by Indiana freshman linebacker Cam Jones.
Jones was called for a targeting penalty, which was confirmed via replay, meaning Jones was ejected from the game.
But, Edwards, who walked on the team as a graduate transfer from Central Michigan, laid motionless on the field as football staff and players, including coach Jim Harbaugh, gathered around him.
After the game, Harbaugh said Edwards had a concussion but that all initial reports were good.
Edwards is the brother for former U-M All-American wide receiver Braylon Edwards, who expressed his disapproval of the Wolverines’ loss to Notre Dame early this season.

After his brother was injured, Braylon again took to Twitter.
Berkley was eventually carted off the field after being strapped down. It would appear it was done as a precautionary measure, as both U-M radio and the Fox broadcast teams reported that Edwards had feeling in his extremities.
Also after the game, Braylon provided more of an update via social media.
