ANN ARBOR — The Michigan football team appears to be almost 100 percent healthy for its regular-season home finale today.
Defensive backs Lavert Hill and Josh Metellus are both in uniform and participating in pre-game warmups ahead of Saturday’s game against Indiana (4 p.m., FS1).
Hill, a sophomore cornerback, did not practice on Monday or Tuesday while Michigan waited on him to clear NCAA-mandated protocol after he suffered a concussion during last week’s win over Rutgers.
Metellus, a junior safety, was held out of last week’s game with a soft-tissue injury suffered last week in practice. Head coach Jim Harbaugh said he was available to play against Rutgers if needed.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon, who also missed last week with the flu, is also in uniform and going through warmups. But he, too, was expected back.
The Wolverines boast the No. 1 ranked defense in the country through 10 games, allowing just 219.8 yards per game. They also are No. 1 in pass defense at 116 yards per game.
Michigan (9-1, 7-0 Big Ten) is riding a nine-game winning streak after losing its season opener at No. 3 Notre Dame.
