Michigan quarterback Chad Henne will not play against Notre Dame because of an injury.
Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr did not provide a timetable for Henne's return, but listed him on Monday as week-to-week.
Freshman Ryan Mallett will start against the Fighting Irish on Saturday at home in a matchup of storied teams with 0-2 records.
"This test will be different than any he's had," Carr said. "But I can guarantee you that he's not intimidated."
