Per several reports on Twitter, Juwan Johnson did not travel with the team to Ann Arbor for Saturday's showdown with Michigan. The big-bodied receiver barely played against Iowa a week ago, and it appears that the injury he sustained against Indiana has yet to dissipate.

In Johnson's absence, look for some combination of Mac Hippenhammer and Cameron Sullivan-Brown to fill in on the outside. If healthy, this could also be a chance for true freshman Justin Shorter to get some playing time. However, there haven't been any indications he's ready for such a role just yet.
