So there is a rumor out there that the Angry Michigan Secondary-Hating God has struck again, and JT Floyd's ankle might be done for. He reportedly broke his ankle in practice yesterday, and Troy Woolfolk said on his twitter:
"Things just got worse for Michigan fans. Can't elaborate that's all I'm saying."
The Detroit Free Press is also reporting on this although none of the coaching staff have come out and confirmed. It's a good thing that the Michigan secondary is so deep and talented...
According MGoBlog.com, Troy Woolfolk is hurriedly backtracking his previous statement, which is likely a cover-your-ass move. Obviously, he wouldn't be allowed to break such news, but since both the FREEP and ESPN are on-board with this story, I would say that it's a mostly-true e-rumor.
So what does this mean? It means that Floyd will likely be out the season and, if not, at least this Saturday against Illinois. If you weren't already terrified of Illinois coming to town, you should be now.
I'll try to update and confirm as I can. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: As of about 11:45 CST The Detroit news, along with various other previously cited sources across the internet confirm J.T. Floyd will be out for the rest of the season. It's not a break but there are torn ligaments. Rodriguez, during his Wednesday teleconference announced that Courtney Avery will be starting in his place.
