Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is unlikely to have defensive linemen Taco Charlton and Bryan Mone on Saturday against Central Florida. The two were injured in the win over Hawaii, 63-3.

"I don't think either one (of those guys) will be available this week," Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "I don't think Bryan Mone or Taco will be out ... It's hard to say at this point. It's hard to say at this point. I don't have an update on how long they'll be out, but I don't anticipate them playing this week."

Mone left with a leg injury and received an MRI after the game. Charlton left with an ankle injury in the first half.

Without Charlton or Mone, true freshman Michael Onwenu will see more time on the defensive end.

"That's possible," Harbaugh said. "He played well (Saturday). He played more snaps on offense but he's somebody who played in the game, played well, stood out as a very good player in the game."

The 6-foot-3, 350-pound athlete played offensive guard in the win against Hawaii and then chipped in on the defensive line late in the fourth quarter.
