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.
