ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long has an ankle injury that could keep him out for "a significant amount of time," coach Lloyd Carr said Thursday

Speaking to Michigan fans and supporters at a kickoff luncheon, Carr didn't give specifics of the injury nor say how many games the sophomore could miss.

"Jake Long got rolled up in practice and will miss a significant amount of time," Carr said.

Long started Michigan's final 10 games last season and was slated to start again for the fourth-ranked Wolverines.

Michigan opens its season Sept. 3 at home against Northern Illinois.
