I live in Michigan. I found this spider in my home. I've never had one before. I've been told wolf spider but I see differences. There aren't 2 "things" sticking out of the back end in the pics but my spider did have them. Please help.

This is a harmless grass spider in the family Agelenidae - the 'things' sticking out are its spinnerets.
