LS Steve Moore Will Miss 2012 Season With Spinal Injury

From MSU:

Michigan State junior snapper Steve Moore will be sidelined for the entire 2012 season after fracturing his C4 vertebra on Saturday. Moore suffered the injury after diving off the back of a boat and landing on a sandbar. He has full use of all extremities, with no loss of sensation. Moore is consulting with doctors regarding probable surgical intervention.

Most importantly, it's good to hear Moore was not paralyzed or worse. Hopefully he will be OK.

Moore was the long snapper for the Outback Bowl and probably was going to start in that position this fall. With the transfer of last year's starter, Matt Giampapa, incoming freshman Taybor Pepper may be next in line for long-snapping duties. Pepper was going to walk-on at Michigan before an MSU offer in April made him a Spartan. Here was his Welcome Aboard page.

Update: Moore's dad tells MLive that his son's football career is over. He is scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday and is expected to recover. As Moore's dad says, he's lucky it wasn't worse.
