Michigan football has released its official injury and availability report for Saturday’s non-conference finale against Bowling Green. There are a handful of notable guys on the report that are both out and questionable.

The list of guys out this week is headlined by junior safety Rod Moore, who will miss his third-straight game to start the season.

Here is the report released for this week for Michigan:

OUT

• Sophomore wide receiver Darrius Clemons
• Sophmore cornerback Amorion Walker
• Junior cornerback Ja’Den McBurrows
• Junior safety Rod Moore
• Sophomore safety Zeke Berry
• Sophomore running back CJ Stokes
• Freshman running back Benjamin Hall
• Freshman defensive lineman Cameron Brandt

QUESTIONABLE

• Sophomore cornerback Will Johnson
• Senior safety Makari Paige
• Graduate quarterback Jack Tuttle
• Junior running back Tavierre Dunlap
• Graduate cornerback German Green
• Junior wide receiver Peyton O’Leary

Here’s what head coach Jim Harbaugh said about secondary injuries earlier this week:

We got guys out right now. Will Johnson has been out. He got in for a series and we hope we can keep amping that up as we go. Rod Moore hasn’t really played and Amorion Walker has been out, Makari Paige, too. Those guys that are in there playing right now are really playing at starter level and that’s good. You look in the second half, it’s a secondary of freshman. DJ Waller had a really good game. Cam Calhoun and Jyaire Hill, Hillman is going to be a really good player.

You can really see that Coach Clink does a tremendous job with the secondary. Things have really changed around here defensively since Steve Clinkscale came here. Tremendous job coaching, guys are leaders back there. You can see the development taking place and you see the game, OK, good players being development. Very strong in the secondary. That stood out to me. We’re getting pressure and a lot of it was because we were so much fire zone. The coverage usually there is some holes in the backend but our guys were closing them up fast.

What time does Michigan start on Saturday?

Michigan and Bowling Green kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday evening. The game will be televised via Big Ten Network. Offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Sherrone Moore will be the team’s interim head coach with Harbaugh serving the final game of his three-game school-imposed suspension.
