Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner has been granted a medical hardship for the 2010 season, leaving him with two seasons of eligibility remaining for the Wolverines.

“I feel great about it. I’m just happy to be able to help the team as long as I can,” Gardner told MGoBlue.com. “It’s a great place to live and go to school, so I’m happy about that.

“But that’s not really the big issue. We have a season this year and spring ball is about to start. I’m really focused and ready to play this season first.”

Gardner joked that offensive coordinator Al Borges would “be pretty disappointed” that the quarterback-turned-wide receiver-turned-quarterback would have two more seasons in Ann Arbor, but this comes as great news to Michigan coaches and fans alike. Gardner began the 2012 season starting at wide receiver, but moved back to quarterback — his original position — when Denard Robinson suffered a midseason elbow injury.
