Michigan State junior T Skylar Burkland will retire from football due to multiple sport-related injuries.
Burkland, who technically has two more seasons of eligibility, has applied for a medical disqualification, which would allow him to finish school on scholarship. That scholarship would not count towards the 85 man limit. Burkland missed the first few weeks of 2012 with a hand injury but was the starting right tackle for the final 11 contests.

Michigan State sophomore T Skyler Burkland will miss a week of practice after suffering a hand injury.

When asked whether Burkland needed surgery on the hand, head coach Mike Dantonio answered, "I can't talk about these things. Why do you guys ask me these things? So I'll let your imagination run wild." Burkland is competing with Fou Fonoti for the starting right tackle job, a battle he won last year but missed the rest of the season after fracturing his right ankle in September.
