ANN ARBOR, Mich. (97.1 The Ticket) -- Michigan's Berkley Edwards was carted off the field after taking a vicious hit during a kick return in the Wolverines' 31-20 win over Indiana Saturday.

Edwards, a sixth-year running back who transferred from Central Michigan after two seasons at Minnesota, was involved in a helmet-to-helmet hit from Hoosiers linebacker Cam Jones with around six minutes left in the game.

Edwards remained down on the field for several minutes. Michigan trainers had to remove his helmet and pads, placing him on a stretcher.

Edwards, the younger brother of former Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards, appeared to be conscious as he was carted into the tunnel.

Jones was ejected after being flagged for targeting. He left the stadium as fans booed loudly.

The elder Edwards sent an update on his younger brother via Twitter, saying he was moving all extremeties and responding to tests.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh said following the game that doctors at the hospital told the team Edwards has a "good sized concussion," but he is responsive, moving and talking. He said he felt good that doctors have it "well under control."

Edwards was the second Wolverine to leave the game, following senior defensive lineman Chase Winovich, who was on the receiving end of a dirty hit from Indiana offensive lineman Simon Stepaniak. Reports say that Winovich may have suffered a broken collar bone and his season may be over.
