Mark Dantonio has spoken and running back L.J. Scott will play against Indiana on Saturday. This news comes after Scott was charged with driving without a valid license — for the seventh time.

It appears Scott has now gotten a valid license.

Mark Dantonio released a statement on the matter. Per Chris Solari, the Michigan State head football coach had this to say:

“In what has been a lengthy process, LJ Scott now has a valid driver’s license, free of any restrictions,” Dantonio said in a statement. “He has resolved the matter completely, and has paid a price, both financially and publicly. His status will be affected for Saturday’s game, but he will play.”

The key phrase I draw from that is “His status will be affected...” Perhaps that means Scott won’t start or will have to sit out the first half, but we at least know that Scott will be seen on the field at some point against the Hoosiers.

Scott finally had a breakout game against Minnesota last week, rushing for 194 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll need to continue that against Indiana’s weak run defense.

Should Scott be allowed to play, or should he have been disciplined? Vote in the poll and discuss in the comments.
