Harbaugh tour to end earlier due to Zika fears

4:02 PM ET

Michigan’s summer satellite camp tour will be ending one stop sooner than expected over concerns about the Zika virus, a school athletics department official confirmed.

Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh was supposed to be among a group of staffers finishing up a monthlong tour with a trip to American Samoa on Thursday. Instead, the camp has been canceled.

John Raynar, communications director for the Republican Party of American Samoa, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that Harbaugh was advised by a family doctor to skip the trip because of potential health risks to pregnant women. Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah, is pregnant.
