In one of the most curious seasons in recent memory, Michigan State football has now lost two starting punters as Tyler Hunt is reportedly out.

When it rains, it pours. The list of Michigan State players who have been bitten the season-ending injury bug has grown by one on Friday as Tyler Hunt is being reported out for the remainder of the year.

According to reports, he suffered a non-contact injury in practice (which is obviously never good) and will miss the rest of the season, making that two starting punters out for the year.

I mean, what kind of luck is that.

Let’s just take a look at the list of kids out for extended time this season:

  • Felton Davis III
  • Jake Hartbarger
  • Tyler Hunt
  • Matt Allen
  • Cody White
  • David Beedle
  • Josiah Scott
  • Jalen Nailor
  • LJ Scott
  • Josh Butler

That may not seem like an extensive list, but those are just the kids who have, or will, missed extended time. That’s not to mention Brian Lewerke (out Saturday), Kevin Jarvis, Cole Chewins, Darrell Stewart Jr., Cam Chambers, Laress Nelson and Jacub Panasiuk.

This team has been absolutely decimated by injuries and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Punting has already been an issue, though Hunt had improved, and that means the Spartans will have to turn toward an inexperienced player at the position. Will it be the Illinois transfer or a freshman?

Michigan State has some questions to answer on Saturday and it’ll be interesting to see what the special teams look like. Who will we see back at punter?
