Will he or won’t he?
That’s the question surrounding Michigan starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint’s status for the No. 8 Wolverines opener against No. 2 Alabama on Saturday night.
Toussaint was arrested for drunken driving this offseason and was suspended by Michigan head coach Brady Hoke. Hoke reinstated Toussaint in the second week of preseason practice, but he will not say whether or not his running back will face the Crimson Tide on Saturday. According to the second year Wolverines head coach, the decision on Toussaint will be made between now and kickoff time on Saturday night.
When he is sentenced in October, Toussaint could face up to 93 days in jail.
One interesting note: Toussaint is listed atop the Wolverines depth chart. That could be a key sign about the running back’s status for Saturday.
