EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State cornerback Vayante Copeland will miss the rest of the season because of a fractured vertebra.

Coach Mark Dantonio says Copeland should heal fine and be back next spring, but he will not return this tear. Copeland, a redshirt freshman, did not play in Michigan State’s victory over Air Force on Saturday. He started the first two games of the season.

The Spartans moved up to No. 2 in the AP poll after their victory over Air Force, but they’ve lost some key defensive players to injury. Linebacker Ed Davis went down with a season-ending knee injury before the season started.
