ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Michigan quarterback Chad Henne did not play in the second half against Oregon on Saturday because of an injury, and he's not expected to face Notre Dame.
``I think he's very doubtful for next week,'' coach Lloyd Carr said after the Ducks beat the Wolverines 39-7.
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.
``I'm not going to get into that,'' Carr said when asked if Henne hurt his ankle.
Henne, who struggled in last week's loss to Appalachian State, did not play well against Oregon.
He was 12-of-23 for 172 yards with a touchdown and an interception, a pass that sailed into double coverage on the opening drive.
Henne did throw a perfect pass to the back of the end zone that was caught by Adrian Arrington late in the first quarter, giving Michigan a 7-3 lead. 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 highly touted freshman from Texas, started the second half and threw an interception midway through the third quarter. He finished with six completions in 17 attempts for 49 yards.
