Michigan State Football: A.J. Troup surgery, out for the season


Michigan State redshirt sophomore receiver A.J. Troup made the announcement via Twitter that he is having surgery today.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Troup suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during high school and re-injured his knee after arriving in East Lansing in 2011. The Minneapolis native looked promising in the Green and White Spring football game, hauling in 46-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Maxwell to give White the 24-17 victory.

Troup did not see action in 2011 or 2012 but looked to be a deep threat for the Spartans this upcoming season.

Transfers Juwan Caesar and Kyle Kerrick along with John Jakubik (injury) will join Troup as receivers that will miss some or all of the 2013 Spartans’ season. The Spartans receiver corp remains strong with Aaron Burbridge, Bennie Fowler, Keith Mumphrey, Tony Lippett, Andrew Sims Jr., Monty Madaris, and others as healthy members.
