ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan announced changes to its injury protocol Tuesday, admitting it made a mistake in handling quarterback Shane Morris following a suspected concussion because of a "serious lack of communication" and "confusion" among the coaching staff.

Athletic director Dave Brandon said Michigan plans to have a medical professional in the press box or video booth at future football games after what happened over the weekend.

Coach Brady Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after the sophomore took a hard hit in the fourth quarter against Minnesota on Saturday. Hoke said Monday he didn't see the hit on Morris, and that all he knew at the time was that his quarterback was dealing with an ankle issue.
