Key Michigan State DB reportedly dressed for game vs. OSU after significant injury absence
Xavier Henderson is in uniform and could be active today for Michigan State’s matchup with Ohio State.
The senior defensive back, who was a captain for the Spartans in all 13 games in 2021, has been out since suffering a leg injury in Week 1 against Western Michigan.

This would be a huge addition to a Spartan defense that has mightily struggled over the last 2 games. Henderson tied for the team lead in tackles in 2021, finishing the season with 96. Henderson has 3 INTs and 3 sacks in his career as well.
The Spartans will need their star if they have any chance against a tough Buckeye team. Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud is a Heisman favorite and has several reliable targets at his disposal.
The Spartans hope to put an end to their 2-game skid. In Week 4, the Spartans suffered a loss to Washington, and then got blown out last week at home against Minnesota.
