Michigan wide receiver Tarik Black missed 10 games a season ago after having surgery on his left foot. Unfortunately, it looks like he's going to miss significant time this season as well - because of a right football injury.

Black was reported to have injured his right foot at practice this past Saturday. Monday, head coach Jim Harbaugh provided an update for reporters. Black has a broken right foot and will be out "some weeks."

Black, it seems at a minimum, will be missing his team's big opener against Notre Dame this weekend.

Black, in three games last season, had 11 receptions for 149 yards. He was considered the team's top option heading into this season.

Michigan's first four games come against Notre Dame, Western Michigan, SMU and Nebraska. It's unclear if Black will miss more time than that.

Donovan Peoples-Jones and Nico Collins are expected to see more action as a result of Black's injury.

Michigan and Notre Dame will face off at 7:30 PM ET on September 1.
