Michigan State’s Scott will redshirt
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said running back LJ Scott will redshirt this season and return in 2019.
Scott did not play Saturday when the 24thranked Spartans lost 26-6 to eighth-ranked Ohio State. He hurt his ankle in early September and has appeared in only four games this season.
Scott was considered a candidate to leave for the NFL last year, but he decided to come back to Michigan State. He has rushed for only 180 yards this season.
Players can now appear in up to four games and still qualify for a redshirt year.
