Harbaugh Updates Tarik Black, Chris Evans and Kwity Paye's Health

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan has continued to go through the season without second-year wide receiver Tarik Black, who broke his foot just days before the season opener against Notre Dame.

However, Black seems to be coming along, and is off his mobility scooter, walking around in a lightweight boot. Could he be back sooner than later?

The update should come soon, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh says, with Black’s doctor coming to town the weekend after next.

“Yeah, he’s rehabbing good,” Harbaugh said. “His doctor will be coming into town when the Packers play the Lions (on Oct. 7). I think he’s got a scheduled appointment then to look at it. Could have some good news at that point. Things look really good the way it’s progressing.”

There have been two other injuries in recent days. Running back Chris Evans left the SMU game in Week Three with an apparent leg injury. While Ben Mason and Jay Harbaugh both intimated that Evans had been practicing, he’s been extremely limited in such capacity. As a result, Evans did not dress or play last week.

And second-string defensive end Kwity Paye got extended playing time in Michigan’s romp over Nebraska on Saturday, but laid on the turf for several minutes before walking off under his own power.

Harbaugh had, well, non-updates on both as of Monday afternoon.

“I don’t have an update on Kwity, and not really one on Chris,” Harbaugh said. “Haven’t seen him. Hasn’t practiced or anything on the field yet. Don’t know exactly where that’s going to be today.”

Still unknown is the status of defensive end Aubrey Solomon, who had a surgery after Week One and was called “week-to-week” then “day-to-day” by Harbaugh over the past two weeks, respectively.
