EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State tackle Skyler Burkland is expected to miss the rest of the season after dislocating his left ankle Saturday against Notre Dame.
The school says Burkland had successful surgery Sunday and will miss approximately three months. He's expected back in time for the winter conditioning program.
Burkland, a redshirt freshman, started the first three games of the season at right tackle. He was hurt in the second quarter of Michigan State's 31-13 loss over the weekend.
