EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio says cornerback Josiah Scott is expected to miss about two months after a non-contact injury.

That announcement from Dantonio was the most significant bit of news when the Spartans held their annual media day on Monday. Scott started 12 games last season as a freshman.

Dantonio didn’t elaborate on the injury. He said defensive end Dillon Alexander also went down with a non-contact injury. Alexander’s injury was to his foot.

The Spartans had high hopes for their secondary, with starters Khari Willis, David Dowell, Justin Layne and Scott all back. Now it appears they’ll be without Scott for a while.
