Michigan WR Tarik Black Seen Without Walking Boot

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan could be getting good news rather soon when it comes to second-year wide receiver Tarik Black, who broke his (other) foot for the second consecutive year.

Black was injured just days before the season opener, and has surgery to repair his broken foot quickly after he sustained his setback. He’s been seen recently in a walking boot, but as of Saturday, not so much.

Arriving with the team for Michigan’s homecoming matchup against Maryland, Black arrived not wearing any kind of walking boot or protective gear on either of his feet.

Considering that the target was to get Black back sometime within 6-8 weeks, he seems to be on pace for a return his such. With it being Week Six, he’s 5 weeks removed from surgery, and is expected to meet with his doctor this weekend, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh, who spoke on the matter at his Monday press conference.

“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.”

Michigan certainly could use Black on the field, given that next Saturday it starts its three game gauntlet, starting with a night game against Wisconsin, before traveling to Michigan State and finishing with Penn State at home after a bye.
