Michigan Practice Notes

•The starting defense is seriously lacking depth, and the defensive line is no exception. John Ferrara might move back to the defensive line after moving to the offensive line last year.

•Rich Rodriguez feels the reason the offense is getting big plays in practice is due to its execution and not a reflection on the defense.

•Martavious Odoms sat out on Thursday due to a headache.

•Kelvin Grady continues to impress at the slot WR position after his move from the basketball team. This is bad news for Terrence Robinson, who continues to have problems catching the ball.

•Rodriguez has been leaving all defense coaching duties so far this fall to defensive coordinator Greg Robinson.

Recruiting News

•Scouts are reporting that Florida CB Tony Grimes is now a package deal with high school teammate DE Clarence Murphy. This is most likely bad news for the Wolverines, who only have four spots remaining in the 2010 class.
