ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he expects quarterback Denard Robinson to practice without limitation and play against No. 17 Nebraska.

The speedy quarterback sprained his right wrist in the third quarter of Saturday's 31-14 win at Illinois and didn't return.

Hoke says Robinson threw the ball well Sunday during practice.

The 20th-ranked Wolverines will host the Cornhuskers this week in a matchup of eight-win teams with 4-2 records in the Big Ten. They are tied for second place behind Michigan State in the Legends Division.

Sophomore Devin Gardner replaced Robinson and threw a touchdown pass to Martavious Odoms to give the Wolverines a comfortable 24-7 lead. Hoke says Gardner managed the game well.
