Rumor update. Kevin Grady's ACL tear is out in the wild:

Junior running back Kevin Grady is U-M's latest casualty after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament during last Saturday's practice.

His father, Kevin Grady Sr., confirmed the knee injury Thursday evening.

"He was having a great spring, but it's one of those things that's out of your control," Grady Sr. said.
Grady has a redshirt available and is expected to take it.

Angelique Chengelis says not so fast (no permalink) on the Carlos Brown thing:
The source also said rampant rumors of Carlos Brown's transfer are not true. Well, not exactly. Brown, who moved this spring from tailback to cornerback, was, apparently, contemplating whether to leave the Wolverines and did take time off from practice, but he has decided to stay put. Michigan's final spring practice is Saturday.
At last check, Rivals was still assuming he was gone and they've proven far more accurate than the News about these sorts of things in the past unless the topic is Morgan Trent's hand, so I remain somewhat skeptical. It does sound like Brown recently decided to stay, perhaps in the aftermath of the Grady injury, so this is less a conflict and more the News getting some updated information. Brown's return would be welcomed at either tailback or cornerback or even both. He's also reportedly having the kick and punt return jobs dangled in front of him.
