LOOK: Josiah Scott to start for Philadelphia Eagles

Josiah Scott was spotted warming up with the first team defense in Philadelphia:

It appears that former Michigan State standout cornerback Josiah Scott is going to start for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon. With the Eagles starting slot corner Avonte Maddox ruled out for the contest, it has opened the door for Scott to step in and get an opportunity.

It has been reported that Scott was warming up with the first team defense at the nickel corner position, which means he most likely will be starting for the Eagles defense against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Former Michigan State football QB Brian Hoyer to start Sunday

Brian Hoyer is set to start on Sunday for the Patriots against the Packers

Brian Hoyer was the first of a stretch of great MSU quarterbacks under Mark Dantonio in East Lansing. Since his time in East Lansing, Hoyer has carved out a nice role for himself in the NFL, starting in some places and being a backup in others. One thing is for sure, and that is Bill Belichick has a liking to Hoyer’s presence in New England.

Due to an injury to starting QB Mac Jones, Hoyer is getting called upon to start for the Patriots in their matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Kenneth Walker III is extremely missed by Michigan State football fans right now. The Spartans’ star running back from a year ago is now with the Seattle Seahawks, who selected him in the second round of the NFL draft.

Walker has been dealing with a hernia injury so we haven’t been able to see too much from him this year so far, but he did have his first big NFL highlight on Sunday, when he busted out a 21-yard gain that looked like it should’ve been a short gain.

You can hear in the clip below that Walker scrambled for over 60 yards to get the 21-yard gain:

Michael Irvin picks Kirk Cousins to be the 2022 NFL MVP

Michael Irvin is a Kirk Cousins believer

The NFL career of Kirk Cousins has been a fascinating one. Cousins came into MSU as an unheralded recruit, emerged as one of the best quarterbacks in Michigan State history, was the second quarterback drafted by the Washington Redskins (after Robert Griffin III), and is now one of the highest paid players in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings.

There are those, however, that think that Cousins is a middling starter at best. Not Michael Irvin though. The NFL Hall of Famer wide receiver and NFL GameDay analyst recently tagged Cousins as his pick for 2022 NFL MVP, high praise from the Cowboys’ legend.
