Michigan has lost a starter for the Michigan State game, per U-M officials. Sophomore tight end A.J. Williams will not be suited up when the Wolverines travel to East Lansing.
Williams, who has started the last four games as a blocking tight end, has been suspended for one game, for a violation of team rules.
"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."
