Mike Sainristil, who started at nickel for Michigan last year and made arguably the biggest play of the season (breaking up a Cade Stover TD vs. OSU), is getting run on the outside at practice. MLive’s Aaron McMann reports that Sainristil is working at CB2 as well as nickel.

Sainristil, Josh Wallace, Amorion Walker and Ja’Den McBurrows are the ones fighting for the CB spot opposite of Will Johnson.
“It’ll come down to a situation where Mikey (Sainristil) will be a starter, Will Johnson will be a starter, and then who is that other starter — whether it’s at nickel or corner? It may take training camp,” Harbaugh said. “It may take into the first couple of games.”
