ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he has ``no doubt'' running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and cornerback Blake Countess will be healthy enough to start the 2013 season.
Toussaint broke his left leg in a game five months ago and Countess tore a knee ligament in last year's opener. Both were able to participate in non-contact drills this spring, but were not cleared to play in Saturday's situational scrimmage.
Hoke says linebacker Jake Ryan could possibly play in mid-October, eight months after having knee surgery.
The banged-up Wolverines seemed to get through their final spring practice without another player getting seriously hurt. Tight end Devin Funchess went to the sideline with a limp and was later walking gingerly. Hoke said Funchess would be all right.
