Shane Morris was diagnosed with a probable mild concussion and a high ankle sprain.
Ann Arbor, MI (SportsNetwork.com) -
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon issued a statement early Tuesday morning regarding quarterback Shane Morris' injury status and how it was handled on the sideline during Saturday's game against Minnesota.
Brandon said it appeared Morris did suffer a probable mild concussion in the fourth quarter of the loss to the Gophers and returned to the contest.
Morris, who had sustained an ankle injury earlier in the game, took a hit from Minnesota's Theiren Cockran and stumbled. The medical training staff did not see the hit and believed the stumble might have resulted from the ankle injury.
What a mess in Michigan

Oh, how the mighty can fall.
Last weekend, during Michigan's 30-14 loss to Big Ten Conference opponent Minnesota, Wolverines sophomore quarterback Shane Morris was blasted by Gophers defensive lineman Theiren Cockran following a rollout throw. The hit to Morris' chin knocked him immediately to the ground and caused some visible damage to the quarterback, who got up slowly and seemed to stumble while making his way back to the huddle.
After remaining in the game for one more play, Morris needed the assistance of several players to get off the field back to the sideline.
