Jim Harbaugh: Freshman RB Kareem Walker ‘working through’ academic issues next few weeks
Michigan RB Kareem Walker didn’t dress in Saturday’s win over Hawaii, and coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that the freshman is “working through some things academically” and will be playing less football while he does.
Kareem Walker is "working through some things academically." Want him focused on academics for the "next weeks" to get that straight.

It sounds like Walker will take some time off from football to get his schoolwork in order, but Harbaugh didn’t announce a timetable for his return or debut.
Walker was the No. 101 player and No. 4 RB in the class of 2016. He committed to Michigan in December 2015.
