The Michigan Wolverines quarterback Chad Henne will miss the Notre Dame game on Saturday due to injury.

Michigan without quarterback Henne for Notre Dame game Yet another blow for the struggling Michigan Wolverines as the announcement came that starting quarterback Chad Henne will miss the game against Notre Dame on Sunday, due to knee injury. Henne was hurt during the game against Oregon, which Michigan lost 39-7 and did not play in the second half of the college game. At this point it remains unknown how many games will Chad Henne miss, head coach Lloyd Carr has listed the senior as week-to-week.

 Henne will be replaced with freshman Ryan Mallett for the game against Notre Dame. "This test will be different than any he's had. But I can guarantee you that he's not intimidated," coach Lloyd Carr encouraged Mallett. Ryan Mallett finished the second half in the game against Oregon, threw an interception midway through the third quarter and finished with six completions in 17 attempts for 49 yards. Mallet enrolled at Michigan in January from Texas.

 The odds makers have Michigan as the favorite on Sunday against Notre Dame. The betting odds on the Wolverines are set at -315 and the Irish are at +265, as posted by the online sportsbook Bookmaker. The point spread for the Michigan - Notre Dame game is also out, Michigan are -7.5 against the spread.
