The Michigan State injury news that has been expected for weeks at last became official on Tuesday. Spartans Kyle Ahrens will not play this season due to a foot injury, coach Tom Izzo announced. Ahrens recently started walking without a boot on his foot, but is still a month away from practicing, Izzo said. Team doctors have elected to hold him out for the entire season, Izzo said. “They’re not going to take any chances,” Izzo said.
