ABC-TV reported at halftime that Michigan trainer Paul Schmidt said Henne was out for the rest of the game with a lower-leg injury.
Henne, who struggled in last week's loss to Appalachian State, did not play well against Oregon.
He was 12-of-23 with a touchdown and an interception, a pass that sailed into double coverage on the game's opening drive.
Henne did throw a perfect pass to the back of the end zone that was caught by Adrian Arrington, giving Michigan a 7-3 lead late in the first quarter. It was the senior quarterback's 72nd touchdown pass, putting him in a tie with John Navarre atop Michigan's record books.
Late in the first half, Henne was hit as he ran out of bounds by Willie Glasper, and freshman quarterback Ryan Mallett put his helmet on as if he was going into the game. Henne stayed in and completed his next pass to convert a fourth down, but the Wolverines ended up turning the ball over on downs when Henne threw an incomplete pass from the Oregon 8.
Mallett, a freshman star from Texas, started the second half and threw an interception midway through the third quarter.
