Michigan coach Brady Hoke has suspended starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and reserve defensive end Frank Clark for Saturday night's opener against No. 2 Alabama.
Hoke made the announcement Friday afternoon, saying both players wouldn't make the trip to Texas.
Toussaint pleaded guilty Tuesday to drunken driving. Clark is accused of taking a laptop from a dorm room.
The eighth-ranked Wolverines will likely use running backs Thomas Rawls, Vincent Smith, Justice Hayes perhaps along with newcomers Dennis Norfleet and Drake Johnson against the defending national champion Crimson Tide.
