ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan tackle Stephen Schilling is questionable for Saturday game against No. 10 Ohio State because of a sprained knee.

Coach Rich Rodriguez said Wednesday that running back Sam McGuffie is expected to play after attending a funeral, and quarterback Steven Threet has practiced with shoulder injury and is being evaluated as a backup possibility behind Nick Sheridan.

Receiver Zion Babb has been kicked off the team for violating team rules and defensive tackle Jason Kates has chose to leave the team, Rodriguez said. Both played minor roles.

The 10th-ranked Buckeyes are 20-point favorites, the largest spread in the rivalry, against the Wolverines, who have lost a school-record eight games.
