Chris Streveler, the third string quarterback for the Gophers behind Philip Nelson and Mitch Leidner, is listed as out for Saturday's game against Michigan on the team's latest injury report.

Streveler suffered a hand injury throwing the ball, Coach Jerry Kill said Wednesday.

Donovahn Jones, who moved from quarterback to receiver during training camp, was expected to get more quarterback reps during practice this week. And Conor Rhoda, a freshman from Cretin-Derham Hall, has been playing quarterback for the scout team.

Those would be the options if something were to happen to both Nelson and Leidner. Nelson is expected to start, with Leidner as the No. 2 option, but to keep Michigan guessing, it's listed as Nelson "or" Leidner on the team's depth chart.

Fullback Mike Henry, who missed last week's game with a rib injury, is not on this week's injured list. The starter at fullback is listed as Henry "or" Maxx Williams.
