If MIchigan State is going to get revenge for its lone regular season loss against Iowa last season it will have to do so while slightly shorthanded on offense. The Spartans have an injury to all three tight ends as they prepare to head to Iowa City, the worst being a wrist injury to Dion Sims:
Dion Sims has a broken wrist, Brian Linthicum has been limited by a back injury and Garrett Celek suffered a concussion in the win over Wisconsin on Oct. 22.
Sims has caught three passes for 19 yards over the past five games, but he has had multiple dropped passes int hat time. It is expected that tight end Derek Hoebing could see action on Saturday versus the Hawkeyes. Saturday's game with Iowa is a critical one in the Legends Division race. Michigan State leads the Division by one game over Iowa, Michigan, and Nebraska with three games to play.
