Michigan announced Tuesday that senior/junior quarterback Devin Gardner has been granted a medical hardship for the 2010 season, his freshman campaign in which he suffered a season-ending back injury after three games. The quarterback-turned-receiver-turned-quarterback will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

If “Gardner appeared in three games in 2010 as a true freshman,” then why does the stat box indicate that he participated in 4 games?
