Tarik Black Makes Travel Roster, Likely to Play?

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Travel rosters during Big Ten Conference play are extremely limited, even if you’re traveling just 60 miles, as Michigan has on Saturday to take on in-state rival Michigan State. That’s why the following is particularly notable.

Michigan second-year wide receiver Tarik Black hasn’t been available since Week Three of 2017, but it looks like that may change on Saturday, with Black having made Michigan’s travel roster.

Black, of course, broke a bone in his for for the second consecutive year, having now had corrective surgery on both feet. His latest unjustly came just one week before Michigan’s season opener at Notre Dame, as fall camp culminated.

But that’s where the good news ends.

Third-year defensive end Rashan Gary, who’s been held out since he sustained an injury at Northwestern did not make the short trip.

While traveling doesn’t necessitate playing time, it’s more likely than not that Black will see some time on the field, given the travel roster’s limited capacity.

Also of note: DT Michael Dwumfour made the trip but entered the stadium in a walking boot.
