Michigan State football without RB Elijah Collins, two DEs in warmups

EAST LANSING — Michigan State football will be down a few players from its depth chart Saturday night when it hosts Nebraska. And one key defender is sporting a big, green wrap.

Running back Elijah Collins and defensive ends Jack Camper and Itayvion Brown were not in uniform during warmups. Collins was injured during the Spartans' home win over Youngstown State two weeks ago.

Starting safety Angelo Grose joined other MSU defensive players sporting green medical tape, with his left arm and hand wrapped as he went through drills. First-string defensive tackles Jacob Slade and Simeon Barrow will be playing their third straight game with wraps on their hands, and defensive coordinator Scottie Hazelton on Thursday confirmed on Mel Tucker's radio show both players suffered broken hands during preseason camp.
