Michigan will open its 2018 season this weekend. The Wolverines will do so without key wide receiver Tarik Black.

Black injured his right foot in practice over the weekend. Earlier today, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed Black broke his foot and will be out "some weeks."

Black already missed 10 games last year after having surgery on his left foot. This news is a brutal blow for the former four-star recruit.

Tonight, Harbaugh provided a glimmer of hope for his injured wideout. Speaking on his weekly radio show, Harbaugh said a return this season is possible for Black.

Black hauled in 11 receptions for 149 yards and one touchdown in three games last fall before injuring his foot. He responded to his latest setback on Twitter this afternoon.

Michigan opens up its 2018 season on Saturday night at Notre Dame. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.

NBC will broadcast the contest.
