EAST LANSING - What had been rumored for days was confirmed last night, sophomore running back Javon Ringer will be lost to the Michigan State Spartans for the rest of the season after suffering a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Some fear that Ringer, after suffering his second knee injury may not be the same back he was after a sensational freshman season for MSU when he rushed for 817 yards on just 122 carries for a 6.7 average.

The knee is the same one Ringer injured as a senior for Chaminade-Julienne High School in Dayton, OH. That caused several schools including Michigan and Ohio State to cool on him, but the Spartans never wavered in their commitment and landed the talented star.

In Ringer's absence, brusing junior Jehuu Caulcrick will get the call as the starter and MSU will have redshirt freshman A.J. Jimmerson in relief. The injury cuts short a sensational start for Ringer, who had already rushed for 438 yards on 61 carries - an astouding 7.1 per carry average.
