Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh on who fills the gap left by defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow and the possibility of Bryan Mone hitting the field.


Following Michigan's thrilling 48-41 overtime victory at Indiana Saturday night, Jim Harbaugh indicated junior defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow's season looked to be over due to a pectoral injury.

After struggling to stop the run in the fourth quarter, the Wolverines are in search of answers up front along the defensive line with two individuals now joining Jabrill Peppers seeing time on both sides of the ball.

"We're working guys in there. Henry Poggi is now a two way player, Tom Strobel is a two way player and he played quite a few snaps toward the end of the ball game and gave us some good snaps there.

"We'll continue to try to prop that up from a depth standpoint," added Harbaugh.

Strobel took on the added responsibility by coming up with three tackles, while senior defensive tackle Matt Godin chipped in with two.

In another twist, sophomore defensive tackle Bryan Mone could still be poised for a return. After suffering a broken bone in his leg in mid August, Harbaugh was asked if the Utah native could see time before the season comes to an end.

"It's possible," Harbaugh said.

As for Glasgow, brother and senior center Graham Glasgow isn't feeling a whole lot of sympathy for his younger bro.

Despite the obvious disappointment with being sidelined the rest of the way when Michigan still has several goals to play for, the younger Glasgow is adjusting to his new status.

"Ryan's doing fine, playing a lot of Halo 5," Glasgow said. "We play a lot together. Maybe you'll see us on there one day if you guys play.

He's doing fine, I tell him that he had a great season and we're taking it week by week and he had a great season and he's going to come back next season better, stronger and fight another day."

"There's no effect on his Halo play," Glasgow added with a smile.
