Other than the Damon Knox injury, MSU has been fortunate health-wise throughout fall camp. Yesterday, we found out Connor Kruse is out indefinitely with a knee injury, and that is most definitely a bummer. But it doesn't sound incredibly serious, and the Spartans have players who can step in and replace Kruse for the time being. A tough break? Sure. Season altering? Meh, maybe, but if Kruse can actually return by the Oregon game, not really.
Then there's the events of the last 24 or so hours at Ohio State. Braxton Miller, coming off February shoulder surgery, went down after throwing a pass in practice and is done for the year. That's a crushing blow to Ohio State, devastating for Miller and completely changes the landscape of the Big Ten for the upcoming season.
Nobody really factors for injuries when making prognostications, but they tend to come up out of nowhere and often completely derail a season. Last year, MSU was fortuitous in the injury front all the way to a Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl win. Here's to hoping that good fortune carries into this year.
Never leave us.
No way this guy can be kept off the field.
Patience is certainly a virtue.
Reschke has plenty of time.
This is pretty great, so set aside like an hour to go through it.
Didn't even need Dewar to tell me about this hockey link.
You can read about Todd Gurley playing golf, but the playoff stuff is what I pegged as relevant.
Other than the pick, which just barely sailed on Cousins, I thought Captain Kirk played pretty well.
Really like this move. Ready for other schools to follow suit.
