Michigan running back Berkley Edwards had an extremely scary moment during this afternoon's game against Indiana, as he had to be carted off of the field following a brutal hit. Here is the latest on the status of the Wolverines' running back.

Edwards, whose father and brother both played for Michigan, had to be carted off of the field with Michigan Stadium silent, fearing the worst.

Thankfully, Edwards appears to be doing better than it looked.

Michigan's radio team is reporting that Edwards is OK and has feelings in his extremities.

"Michigan Radio says preliminary report is that Berkley Edwards is OK, has feeling in his extremities. Still some stuff to check out, though. But early reports were good," a Michigan beat reporter tweeted.

Edwards was injured on a tough hit late in the contest.

Edwards initially walked onto Michigan, following in his father and brother's footsteps. He previously played at Central Michigan, primarily as a kick returner.

Michigan and Indiana are in the fourth quarter of their contest. It's Michigan 31, Indiana 20.
