Michigan suspends DE Shelton Johnson, WR Ahmir Mitchell

The Michigan Wolverines will be without two players for the foreseeable future.

Earlier this week, head coach Jim Harbaugh announced two players had been suspended from the program but did not release any names. On Wednesday, a member of the athletic department confirmed to the Associated Press that those two players were defensive end Shelton Johnson and wide receiver Ahmir Mitchell.

There is no word on when the players’ suspensions will end or what they were for.

What we do know, however, is that it appears Johnson and Mitchell will be delaying their Wolverines debuts for at least a couple of weeks.

Johnson did not see any action as a freshman a year ago and Mitchell was a member of this year’s recruiting class.

Michigan kicks off its 2016 season on Saturday, Sept. 3 against Hawaii in Ann Arbor.
