EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State offensive tackle Fou Fonoti says he plans to take a medical redshirt and return next season.

Fonoti went down with a season-ending foot injury two days before the Spartans’ Sept. 15 home game against Notre Dame. He announced his decision to return on a Fox Sports Detroit show that focuses on the Michigan State football program.

The 6-foot-4, 296-pound Fonoti is a second-year player from Cerritos College in California.

Coach Mark Dantonio calls Fonoti one of the Spartans’ “emotional leaders” and says it will be good to have him back for another season.
