Mark Dantonio said earlier in the day that Skyler Burkland would be out for the year, which was not unexpected seeing the injury happen. I expect Fou Fonoti to move back to right tackle now. Regardless, this causes even more problems for an MSU offense line that already has plenty of issues.
Michigan State offensive tackle Skyler Burkland suffered a fracture/dislocation of his left ankle in the second quarter of Saturday’s game at Notre Dame. Burkland, who underwent successful surgery on Sunday, will be sidelined for approximately three months.
His full return is expected in time to participate in the winter conditioning program. Burkland started the first three games of the season at right tackle.
