MSU S R.J. Williamson to play Cotton Bowl despite injury


Michigan State senior safety R.J. Williamson will play in the Cotton Bowl against Alabama despite having a torn bicep, according to Joe Rexrode of The Detroit Free Press.

Williamson suffered the injury against Purdue back in October and has not played since. The Spartans’ secondary has been held down since at a high level by Demetrious Cox and Montrae Nicholson.

Despite that, co-defensive coordinator Harlan Barnett has said that Williamson will be “heavily involved” in the Cotton Bowl, part of the College Football Playoff semifinal. Given how Williamson has posted 154 tackles with eight interceptions in his college career, he should definitely be allowed to play if capable. Alabama’s offense is no joke, and the Spartans’ defense will definitely be in “all hands on deck” mode.
