When the University of Michigan took their team photo on Aug. 7, three freshman, receiver Amir Mitchell, running back Kareem Walker, and redshirt freshman defensive lineman Shelton Johnson were left out. Since then there has been speculation about whether or not those players were suspended from the team.
On Monday, Jim Harbaugh verified that two of those players were suspended, but failed to give details about which players, or how long the suspensions will last.
“Two of those players are suspended,” Harbaugh said. “I know you like to ask a lot of questions, but we’ll handle that internally.”
It appears that Mitchell and Johnson will be the two players suspended, as a Michigan official told Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News that Walker was not serving a suspension.
When pressed for details about the suspensions, Harbaugh grew a bit agitated and eventually walked away from the interview.
“That’s why I don’t give you any information because you’re never satisfied,” Harbaugh said. “You always want a second question, a third question, a fourth question. I just said we’d handle it internally. Thank you.”
Here is the entire interview.
