Minor Injury, Major Difference

John ZimmermanContributor IMay 29, 2009

While Brandon Minor rushed for 533 yards on 103 attempts and accounted for 9 touchdowns last fall, the Michigan tailback said he felt like he could have contributed more for his team if not for an injury on his right wrist.

Minor had played through the 2009 season battling an injured right wrist. He had been forced to miss the northwestern game because of the injury. While he was in games he occasionally had to miss plays due to the injury and also, according to himself, missed opportunities to make better results out of certain plays.

This spring, however, Brandon said that the wrist feels good. He's able to carry the ball in his right hand and the wrist isn't bothering him. He says his 'stiff arm' is back and this surely should help him become a better back. This is news all Michigan supporters are happy to hear.

In a recent interview, Minor also said that he noticed an improvement, not on the offensive said of the ball, but from the defense. He said the defensive is swarming now and more people flying to the ball. He's getting hit by two and three people every time he touches it.

This is also news Michigan fans love to hear. With the defense being a big question mark this fall, news of improvement is always a positive. Brandon Minor's health is also a major positive for the Wolverines. He is set and ready to take on his final season in Ann Arbor, and prove that a full recovery from a 'minor' injury will help Michigan become more successful this season.
