Michigan football is always the main topic in Breakfast of Victors, Land of 10’s daily Wolverines notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Wolverines sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Michigan football, recruiting, basketball and more.  


Tarik Black out indefinitely

Michigan had no concerns about the health of its players until the fourth quarter against Air Force. First, senior running back Ty Isaac left the game with what BTN reported as an ab injury. Then freshman wide receiver Tarik Black suffered what coach Jim Harbaugh described as a “crack in his foot” and left the field on a cart after the 29-13 win for the Wolverines.

Isaac is expected to play Saturday at Purdue, Harbaugh said Monday, but the news isn’t nearly as optimistic for Black. Michigan does have options to handle his loss.
