ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan sophomore tight end A.J. Williams will serve a one-game suspension for a violation of team rules.

A news release from Michigan announced that Williams would not play against Michigan State.

Williams, 19, was arrested Sunday morning after failing to stop at a stop sign in Oxford, Ohio, and charged with operation of a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and underage drinking, The Blade in Toledo, Ohio, reported.

Williams registered a .122 blood-alcohol level in an on-site breath exam, Oxford police told The Blade.

Williams has appeared in 19 games for the Wolverines, making four starts. His game snaps likely will be picked up by freshman tight end Jake Butt or redshirt junior Jordan Paskorz.

"It's certainly disappointing when one of your kids makes a very poor decision," coach Brady Hoke said in the team's statement. "A.J. realizes he has let a lot of people down, including himself. As families do, we will help A.J. as he learns a valuable lesson from this."
