Maryland cornerback Jeremiah Johnson is back in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game against Michigan, while offensive lineman Jake Wheeler will start at left tackle against the Wolverines, via The Diamondback's Daniel Popper.

With Johnson at cornerback, Sean Davis will return to his natural position at safety. Cornerback Jarrett Ross will play in the nickel package role Johnson had taken in the previous two games, as Davis started at cornerback.

Left tackle Michael Dunn will be announced as the starter at right tackle ahead of Ryan Doyle, while Wheeler slides into Dunn's usual spot at left tackle. Dunn and Doyle will split time at right tackle, Edsall said, in what is the first Maryland lineup change along the offensive line this season.

Running back Wes Brown will make his second-consecutive start in place of Brandon Ross, though, per Popper, Randy Edsall said Brown would make an earlier entrance into this week's game than he did against Michigan State last Saturday.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs is indeed out for Maryland with a lacerated kidney.

The Terrapins and Wolverines kick off at 3:30 from Michigan Stadium.
