That’s why we made the decision and he made the decision that he would play.“I think it’s better today than it was yesterday, so we’ll have to make the decision as we go.”Today, Lewerke spoke to the media himself. He didn’t want to address the shoulder directly, though.From the Detroit Free-Press:“I don’t really want to talk about the arm right now,” Lewerke said. “I’m just working through it to see if I’ll feel good in practice. … Mentally, you gotta be ready to play no matter what. I’m still gonna come in here and study, whether I play or not. I’m gonna study as much as I can.”If he can’t go, it will probably be Rocky Lombardi against the Boilermakers. He came on in relief of Lewerke against the Wolverines, completing 1-of-2 passes for 9 yards.[Detroit Free-Press]last_img
