U-M tackle Ortmann expected back for Wisconsin

ANN ARBOR -- Michigan left tackle Mark Ortmann is expected back when Big Ten season begins Saturday against Wisconsin at Michigan Stadium.

Ortmann separated his elbow in the Miami of Ohio game and was held out against Notre Dame. Ortmann has benefited from U-M's bye last weekend.

Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday that he believes Ortmann will play Saturday (3:30 p.m. kickoff). Perry Dorrestein, who filled in at left tackle against Notre Dame, "nicked" his knee in practice last week, Rodriguez said, but his progress has been "encouraging" and he should play.

Guard Mark Huyge also is expected back, all of which bodes well for a Michigan offensive line that has struggled with injuries, not to mention inexperience.
