This is what he said:
"It's going to be tough! It's hard to use three tailbacks. You've got Marshawn, you've got Turbo - it's hard to play two, let alone three - so I don't know how that'll work out. I don't know if you go into the game with three active tailbacks. So, we just have to decide how that works out for us. It's going to be tough to get him in there - it's tough to get reps with Marshawn and Turbo [in front of you]."

That actually doesn't sound unequivocal at all to me. Also, Carroll said this week that Michael is battling Turbin for the #2 spot.
Regardless, I will be shocked if Michael doesn't suit up. Also, if they don't figure out how to get his RB combine record 43 inch vertical and super elite 3 cone and shuttle some touches during games, they've lost their darn minds.
