Michigan football Coach Brady Hoke has suspended cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup and linebacker Brandin Hawthorne for a violation of team rules.

Hoke said in an announcement Sunday that the three players would not travel with the 19th-ranked Wolverines for the Outback Bowl against No. 11 South Carolina in Tampa, Fla., because each of them used poor judgment. He didn't specify which team rules were broken.

Floyd is a starting cornerback and Hagerup is the team's top punter. Hawthorne is a backup linebacker.

Hoke says it's an honor to play football for the University of Michigan, and there are high standards and expectations for everyone who represents the program.
