Michigan Vs. Alabama: Status Of Fitzgerald Toussaint, Frank Clark Still Unclear

The Michigan Wolverines haven't decided whether or not to play running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and defensive end Frank Clark in the team's season opener against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Sept. 1, as Kyle Meinke of MLive writes. The two players are currently suspended for off-field behavior by head coach Brady Hoke.

Speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Hoke said that he's still undecided on whether or not to keep both players suspended. They're both currently practicing with the team in anticipation of the biggest game of college football's opening weekend, but Hoke still refuses to say whether or not they'll play.

Toussaint is the bigger absence as Michigan's starting running back, but Clark is also an important player as a backup defensive end. They're both suspended for offseason arrests, but Hoke seems to be seriously considering the idea of playing one or both of them on Saturday.
