Fitzgerald Toussaint, Frank Clark To Play Against Air Force

The Michigan Wolverines certainly struggled on Saturday against the Alabama Crimson Tide, provided you can call such a beatdown a "struggle." Two of their players were absent in the game, though it is unlikely it would have changed the outcome in the end. Still, Stephen J. Nesbitt is reporting via Twitter that both running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and defensive end Frank Clark will play this week against Air Force.

Toussaint was suspended for one game due to an arrest for drunk driving, though he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge last week. He's the team's starting running back and it was thought for awhile that he might actually play against Alabama, before it was announced on Friday that he would not.

Clark also served a one-game suspension for his involvement in an alleged laptop theft.

Toussaint had 1,041 yards on the ground a season ago and was certainly missed by the Wolverines, even if his presence wouldn't have changed the final outcome of Saturday's game. Michigan will take on Air Force at 3:30 p.m. eastern on Saturday at Michigan Stadium.

Fitzgerald Toussaint, Frank Clark Will Not Travel, Play Vs. Alabama

Michigan announced Friday that running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and defensive end Frank Clark will not travel to Dallas nor play against Alabama on Saturday night.

Toussaint was suspended after being arrested for drunken driving, and he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge on Tuesday. Clark was suspended for his involvement in an alleged laptop theft. Both are expected to be available for Week 2.

Toussaint led Michigan running backs and was second on the team with 1,041 yards on the ground last year.

Head coach Brady Hoke said in a release that the decision was made in the best interest of the program and the players themselves, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"The decision was not easy, but I feel it is in the best interest of this program and for these kids, and those always will be my priorities. We have choices every day, and you have to be accountable to this program, your teammates, your family and the University of Michigan. […]

"They are good young men who made poor choices, and we will continue to support them as members of our team and family."

Michigan takes on Alabama at 8 p.m. Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium.
