ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Fourth-ranked Michigan will likely be without its most dynamic receiver at Happy Valley against Penn State on Saturday night, and he could miss much more time than that.
The Detroit News, citing sources close to the situation, reported on Monday that Mario Manningham (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=180763) is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery Tuesday morning to repair a partially torn meniscus in his knee. The paper also said Manningham may have a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in the knee.
At his weekly news conference Monday, Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr refused to confirm radio reports that the sophomore, who leads the nation with nine touchdown receptions, is injured and will not participate in the team's Big Ten Conference matchup against Penn State.
"Is he going to play?" Carr said. "Well, we'll have to see."
ESPN's Joe Schad reports Manningham suffered the knee injury in last week's 31-13 win over Michigan State when he had three catches, two touchdowns and 75 receiving yards.
"I don't have any comment on Mario," Carr said. "I'm sure you understand, because I don't know everything there is to know. ... So, at some point I will."
A native of Warren, Ohio, Manningham was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week in consecutive weeks last month after combining for 250 yards and five TDs in victories over Notre Dame and Wisconsin. He has 24 catches for 527 yards and nine TDs for the Wolverines (6-0).
If Manningham cannot go, junior Adrian Arrington (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=160889), who has 12 catches for 195 yards and three scores this season, and little-used freshman Greg Matthews likely will see more deep balls, with Steve Breaston (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=133761) remaining the primary target for short passes.

That's brutal for Michigan. He's deep threat ability opens their entire offense.

losing Mario hurts our passsing game, but he's not our entire offense. Our offense will go as far as Mike Hart will carry it.

^--- Breaston. But he isn't as much a deep threat.

Hart is the key to Michigan winning. He opens up the passing game for all of our WRs

I have Michigan as the 2nd best team in the nation. Big loss, but I think they'll still off PSU
