Michigan running back Fitz Toussaint and defensive end Frank Clark will not be allowed to play Saturday against Alabama. Both were arrested this summer and suspended from the team, although they were allowed to return to practice about a week into fall camp.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan coach Brady Hoke announced the news in a released statement today. Hoke said that neither player will make the trip to Arlington, Texas, for the Cowboys Classic.
Toussaint was arrested for drunken driving in July, and he pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving while visibly impaired Tuesday. Clark was arrested for allegedly breaking into a dorm this summer and stealing a laptop computer.
Toussaint rushed for 1,041 yards last year in 12 games, and he will be replaced by Thomas Rawls, who gained 79 yards on 13 carries. Clark was listed as a second-team defensive end on the depth chart Hoke released recently.
