Spartans' Jeremiah, Klatt out for spring

Michigan State defensive tackle Antonio Jeremiah and center Nate Klatt will miss the remainder of spring practice following injuries, the team announced Friday.

Jeremiah suffered an ACL injury and Klatt broke his foot. Both players got hurt Tuesday during Michigan State's first practice of the spring.

Klatt should be fine for the start of preseason camp in August, but Jeremiah's injury could impact the season.

Both players were expected to compete for starting positions this spring. Michigan State listed Klatt and three others -- Blake Treadwell, Ethan Ruhland and Travis Jackson -- as co-starters at center on its pre-spring depth chart. Jeremiah, a fifth-year senior who has struggled with weight/conditioning issues in his career, was listed as the second-team nose tackle behind Anthony Rashad White.

On a related note, Michigan State seems to be more willing to share injury information this spring. Coach Mark Dantonio has been extremely tight-lipped about injuries throughout his time in East Lansing, so this is an interesting development.
