(Photo by Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty Images)Following their season-opening loss to Notre Dame, the Michigan Wolverines certainly have questions to answer. Well, Jim Harbaugh could turn to a defensive specialist to fix his team’s offense.The one highlight that stood out against the Fighting Irish was Ambry Thomas’ kickoff return touchdown. Even though his 99-yard return wasn’t enough to result in a victory last weekend, his coach sees another way to utilize his versatile cornerback.When asked about using Thomas on offense against Western Michigan, Harbaugh didn’t rule out the possibility.From MLive.com:“I think we could,” Harbaugh said this week, ahead of Michigan’s Saturday home opener against Western Michigan (Noon, FS1). “We consider all things.”Perhaps Michigan could use Thomas on a jet-sweep play, as his speed is clearly dangerous in the open field.The Wolverines have experienced success with two-way players in the past. Jabrill Peppers was returning kicks, playing linebacker, and helping on offense during his junior season in 2016.It’ll be interesting to see if Harbaugh places Thomas in a similar role this weekend.[MLive.com]last_img
