Michigan offensive lineman Graham Glasgow has been suspended from the program, according to a UM spokesman, after testing .086 on a Breathalyzer given on Sunday and violating his probation.

The violation appeared in online 15th District Court documents Monday.

"We have been made aware of Graham's probation violation, and he has been suspended," according to a statement from UM football coach Jim Harbaugh. "Graham will be subject to punishment through the judicial system, the student-athlete alcohol policy, and the Michigan football program."

It is unclear how long Glasgow's suspension will last.

Glasgow, who last June pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of operating a vehicle while visibly impaired, was given a 12-month probation last July 14 as part of his sentencing in 15th District Court. He originally was arrested March 15 last year on a drunken driving charge, and, coincidentally, this most recent test fell on March 15.

According to the 15th District Court online records, Glasgow violated probation for a "failure to abstain from alcohol." The test was administered Sunday, and at "9:59 a.m. Mr. Glasgow admitted he consumed alcohol," the records state. His attorney John Shea did not return a request for comment.

Glasgow, in light of the departure of fifth-year senior Jack Miller, the Wolverines' starting center last season who last week revealed he was leaving football to focus on school and business opportunity, had moved into a more prominent role at center.

During the 2013 season, Glasgow played predominantly at center, starting the final nine games of the season there after starting the first four games at left guard. He was suspended during spring practice last year at this time by then-coach Brady Hoke after the initial offense, but was permitted to participate in the final day of spring practice, and he was held out of the season opener as part of his punishment.
