ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Chad Henne is ready to resume his full-time quarterbacking duties for Michigan.
The senior quarterback sat out home wins against Notre Dame and Penn State while nursing a knee injury, but returned last weekend to lead Michigan past Northwestern.
On Monday, Henne pronounced himself ready for Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan at the Big House. Henne said he had a partial ligament tear in week two when his right knee was driven into the ground after being hit from behind in a loss to Oregon.
Against Northwestern, Henne played in the first series before yielding to freshman Ryan Mallett. Henne returned to play the entire second half, leading Michigan on two scoring drives. His fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Adrian Arrington gave Michigan its first lead before Mike Hart capped the 28-16 win with a touchdown run.
Henne said he experienced only limited swelling and had no pain in the knee Sunday, a day after completing 18-of-27 passes for 193 yards and three touchdowns.
He said he won't allow his game to change while his knee continues to heal.
``If it happens, it happens. I'm going to be the same person in the pocket,'' Henne said. ``I'm not going to shy away from the pressure or someone in my face. I'm still going to try and make plays.''
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr expressed satisfaction with Henne's return Saturday.
``He did a great job managing the game and managing our offense,'' Carr said.
