Great news, Wolverine fans.

The centerpiece of our offensive line has returned to practice...and just in time for PSU weekend.

At this point, however, it's not clear David Molk will actually play on Saturday. That depends on how he does in practice.

"How he feels after each and every practice will determine, really, what role he can take, whether he can be starting, whether he can play the whole time, in and out, just what he can tolerate," Wolverines head coach Rich Rodriguez said. "Medically, everything has been cleared for him to go to practice. It is a matter of how comfortable he feels with that, getting back in action.

"He hasn't done much football-wise. He did a little last week, but nothing with full pads."
