Michigan State RB L.J. Scott will play vs. Indiana after resolving license issue, Mark Dantonio says

Michigan State running back L.J. Scott will face some discipline but will still play Saturday when the Spartans host Indiana (3:30 ET, ABC), Mark Dantonio said in a statement Friday.

Scott was arrested for driving with a suspended license on Wednesday. It was his seventh charge of that nature, according to the Lansing State Journal.

In his statement, Dantonio said that Scott now has a valid driver’s license and that he “resolved the issue completely.” The Michigan State coach said the junior’s status on Saturday will “be affected” but Scott will still play against the Hoosiers.

“In what has been a lengthy process, LJ Scott now has a valid driver’s license, free of any restrictions,” Dantonio said. “He has resolved the matter completely, and has paid a price, both financially and publicly. His status will be affected for Saturday’s game, but he will play.”

Scott has 408 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the season. He posted 194 yards and two scores against Minnesota last week.
