Shane Morris was diagnosed with a probable mild concussion and a high ankle sprain.
Ann Arbor, MI ( - 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.
