(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Michigan’s loss to Wisconsin two weeks ago was more than demoralizing – it resulted in a concussion for quarterback Dylan McCaffrey. But after missing Saturday’s game against Rutgers, it looks like McCaffrey is on his way to a full recovery.According to Sam Webb of TheMichiganInsider, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh believes that McCaffrey could practice this week. Unfortunately, it he seems less confident in McCaffrey’s ability to play their upcoming game against Iowa.McCaffrey has been used as part of a two-quarterback system that the Wolverines implemented this year. He’s already seen almost as much time on the field through the first few games as he did all of last season.To date, McCaffrey has gone 5-of-11 for 52 yards through the air. He also has 11 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Fortunately for McCaffrey, the Wolverines have a bye after their game against Iowa. So he’ll have plenty of extra time to recover if he isn’t good to go this weekend.Harbaugh: if everything goes really well it’s possible Dylan McCaffrey will practice this week. Probably won’t play in the game— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) September 30, 2019Michigan heads into their game against Iowa as a 5.5-point favorite, despite the No. 19 Wolverines being ranked lower than the No. 14 Hawkeyes.last_img read more
