Michigan State’s quarterback situation has been in flux over the last few weeks with an injury to the shoulder of Brian Lewerke. It doesn’t sound like much has been cleared up, either.

Lewerke has played in three of the last four games for the Spartans, but he’s struggled with his accuracy. He completed just 5-of-25 passes against Michigan in a 21-7 loss. Over the last two weeks in games against Maryland and Ohio State, Lewerke has completed just45.8 percent of his passes.

The only game Lewerke didn’t play, Michigan State’s 23-13 win over Purdue in the final weekend of October, backup quarterback Rocky Lombardi got the start and put up phenomenal numbers. He threw for 318 yards and two touchdowns without an interception.

So there’s been some debate as to who should be taking snaps under center for the Spartans. Mark Dantonio says he plans to make the best decision for the team.

“I don’t make decisions based on fans or media,” Dantonio said during his weekly press conference. “I make the best decision possible for the team. I’m concerned about the well-being of a young man and their mental psyche. I want to make sure it’s intact.”

Many have wondered why Dantonio hasn’t gone with Lombardi if Lewerke’s health is a concern and if the shoulder is affecting his accuracy.

The Spartans sit at 6-4 on the season with two games left on the schedule. They’ll take on a high-powered Nebraska offense in Lincoln on Saturday and will close out the year in East Lansing against Rutgers.

Once again, the starting quarterback situation probably won’t be determined until kickoff. And if it’s known prior to Saturday, Dantonio said the decision will be kept “in house.”
