Ann Arbor — Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez expects quarterback Denard Robinson’s bruised left knee to be healthy enough for him to play at Indiana this weekend.

Rodriguez plans to limit Robinson’s activity on Monday and hopes he can practice Tuesday.

The 19th-ranked Wolverines will face the Hoosiers on the road Saturday in a matchup of 4-0 teams. It is the Big Ten opener for both.

Robinson left Saturday’s game against Bowling Green with an injured left knee in the first quarter and didn’t return. He ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns on five carries and was 4-for-4 passing for 60 yards on two drives plus one play in Saturday’s 65-21 win.

Robinson threw for 671 yards and four TDs and ran for 559 yards and four TDs in the first three games.
