(EAST LANSING) – Michigan State starting cornerback Josiah Scott will miss approximately two months after suffering an injury early in training camp. Coach Mark Dantonio didn't specify Scott's injury but said it occurred on a non-contact play. Scott started 12 games as a true freshman last year, the most ever by a freshman under Dantonio at MSU. He led team in pass breakups (10) and passes defended (12), and he finished tied for second in forced fumbles (1) and tied for third on team in interceptions (2). Scott earned third-team All-Big Ten honors. Dantonio said junior Josh Butler, freshman Kalon Gervin, sophomore Tre Person, freshman Shakur Brown and others will fill in for Scott during his absence. First-year secondary coach Paul Haynes said the team's overall depth, with 19 defensive backs on the roster, will help overcome the loss of Scott. Michigan State opens the season Aug. 31 against Utah State.
