Kevin Grady's disappointing career at Michigan took another wrong turn Thursday, as the reserve running back was sentenced to seven days in jail after pleading guilty to violating his probation.

Grady had been on probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor DWI stemming from a July 2 traffic stop in Wyoming, Mich. Court officials told The Grand Rapids Press that Grady hasn't complied with the terms of his probation, including community service and properly reporting to probation officials in Ann Arbor. Grady also tested positive for opiates.

There's no word yet on Grady's status with the team -- head coach Rich Rodriguez has been traveling -- but I wouldn't expect to see much more of him in maize and blue. Michigan has plenty of capable running backs in Brandon Minor, Carlos Brown and Michael Shaw, and early enrollee Vincent Smith emerged during spring practice.

Grady was indefinitely suspended following his drunken driving arrest last summer but was on the field for the start of preseason practice. He was suspended for the season opener against Utah but appeared in Michigan's final 11 games as a reserve, logging 14 carries for 33 yards and a touchdown.

Named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Michigan as a high school senior, Grady arrived in Ann Arbor with a ton of hype but hasn't done much since his freshman year.
