Former Big Ten Star Tony Lippett Out For Season With Torn Achilles

A former Spartan will be out for the 2017 season.

The Miami Dolphins will be down a corner for the upcoming season.

Tony Lippett, a former Michigan State star, tore his Achilles, and will be forced to miss the full 2017 season.

Dolphins' head coach Adam Gase told reporters that Lippett tore his Achilles in practice on Monday.

Lippett started his collegiate career as a corner before transitioning to the offensive side of the ball. Once there, he became a star for the Spartans, and won the 2014 Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year, as the Big Ten's best wide receiver.

He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
