EAST LANSING, MICH. (AP) - Michigan State offensive lineman Arthur Ray Jr. started for the 17th-ranked Spartans on Friday night against Youngstown State, four years after being treated for cancer in his left leg.

Ray underwent chemotherapy shortly after signing with the Spartans in 2007, and a subsequent infection postponed his comeback until now. Ray played briefly in Michigan State’s spring game during the offseason.

Coach Mark Dantonio indicated earlier this week that Ray wasn’t able to practice much because of the stress on his leg, but he was in at left guard for Michigan State’s first offensive play Friday. The Spartans called a pass, Ray blocked effectively, then he came out of the game.
