EAST LANSING — Michigan State football’s injury situation continues to deepen.
Starting linebacker Quavaris Crouch was in street clothes before the No. 9 Spartans’ game with Maryland on Saturday. And he was not the only starter not in uniform during warmups.
Freshman cornerback Chuck Brantley (shoulder) did not dress, and left tackle Jarrett Horst (undisclosed) and wide receiver Jalen Nailor (hand) remained absent for the second straight week. Backup offensive lineman Matt Carrick announced this week on social media his season is over with a right leg injury.
Michigan State Spartans linebacker Quavaris Crouch (6) tackles Michigan Wolverines running back Hassan Haskins (25) during the second half Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021 at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing.
The 6-foot-2, 230-pound Crouch, a junior transfer from Tennessee, started the first nine games and is second for MSU with 72 tackles. He also has two sacks, three pass breakups, a forced fumble and a recover.
Senior Noah Harvey, who started last season, took first-team reps along with sophomore starter Cal Haladay, who continues to play with a cast on his right hand.
MSU also will be without starting defensive tackle Simeon Barrow, who was suspended for the first half after his targeting ejection early in the second half of last week’s 40-29 loss at Purdue. An MSU spokesman said Barrow will not dress today, and it is unclear if his one-half suspension will carry over to next week’s game at Ohio State.
Kicker Matt Coghlin, who was in uniform but did not play at Purdue last week, went through warmups and was attempting field goals. However, he did not appear to try any kickoffs. Also in uniform are cornerback Marqui Lowery, center Matt Allen and tight end Trenton Gillison.
