Kittredge coming off surgery

Junior defensive tackle, who played in all 13 games last year after transferring from Vanderbilt, working to regain weight after undergoing procedure.

One of the interesting things learned at Big Ten Media Days is that Michigan State defensive tackle James Kittredge is coming off hernia surgery, which he had in June, according to head coach Mark Dantonio.

Kittredge, who played in all 13 games last year as a sophomore, had 14 tackles, including 4.5 for loss.

Dantonio initially said he didn't want to talk too much about injuries, but later divulged that Kittredge had undergone a hernia procedure, which had hampered him during the spring.

Kittredge dropped from a spring weight of 274 to his current listed weight of 252 after the surgery.

"He'll be set to go," Dantonio said. "He'll be coming back to camp lingering a little bit, but he'll be fine and get his weight back as we move forward."

Kittredge is listed as the backup at nose tackle, behind senior Micajah Reynolds.
