A big piece of the Michigan offense apparently will be missing Saturday night, when the 14th-ranked Wolverines 12th-ranked Notre Dame in the season opener for both teams.

Just as he was missing most of last season.

Sophomore wide receiver Tarik Black, purported to be Michigan’s best receiver, suffered a right foot injury in practice on Saturday. It’s an injury The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, citing sources, reported Sunday that may be a fracture and could keep the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Hamden, Conn., product sidelined for much of the season.

The Detroit Free Press got confirmation from the Michigan athletic department of a right foot injury to Black, but the statement did not specify the severity of the injury or a potential time frame for recovery.

Black suffered a broken left foot in game three of the 2017 season. He had 11 receptions for 149 yards and a TD through the first three games of his freshman year.

Michigan receiver Tarik Black is out indefinitely with an injured right foot and is expected to miss Saturday night’s game at Notre Dame Stadium.
