EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) LJ Scott is back. Beyond that, Michigan State's running game has plenty of questions.
Scott's return for his senior season gave the Spartans some good news after they finished 2017 with a victory in the Holiday Bowl, but now he stands out even more in a backfield with little proven depth. Scott's workload has been manageable through three years at Michigan State, but it remains to be seen if the Spartans will have anyone who can effectively spell him during the rigors of the Big Ten season.
Scott didn't do anything too memorable in Saturday's spring game, but Alante Thomas rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown, and Connor Heyward ran for 44 yards and a TD. Heyward is the son of Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, who played 11 seasons in the NFL. He says he and Scott have gotten plenty of work this spring.
