When Michigan takes the field in East Lansing it will do so without starting tight end A.J. Williams. Brady Hoke suspended the sophomore for Saturday's match-up with Michigan State due to a violation of team rules.
According to Fox 45 in Ohio Williams was charged with OVI after an officer said he saw the former Cincinnati Sycamore standout run a stop sign. Williams was was also charged with underage drinking.
"It's certainly disappointing when one of your kids makes a very poor decision," said Hoke. "A.J. realizes he has let a lot of people down, including himself. As families do, we will help A.J. as he learns a valuable lesson from this."
Williams has appeared in 19 games in his Michigan career and assumed the starting position four games ago versus Connecticut.
