Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio had good news ahead of Saturday’s game: Ed Davis will likely play.
While Dantonio spoke Tuesday morning at a press conference, he said he expects Davis will play Saturday against Notre Dame.
“Do I expect him to play? I expect him to play,” Dantonio said.
As another positive sign for Davis, he is listed as Chris Frey’s backup on the depth chart.

Dantonio: I expect (Ed Davis) to play. How much he plays depends on how he comes on in practice.

The linebacker was granted a sixth year of eligibility last week. He missed all of the 2015 season due to a torn ACL.
