Last night, Michigan State junior cornerback Tyson Smith tweeted that he suffered a stroke some time last year.

We will keep you updated if any further details come out regarding Smith's medical condition. This is obviously a scary situation.

As a sophomore, Smith played in eight games for the Spartans, making four starts. He compiled 13 tackles and four pass break-ups.

Smith missed the final four games of the season and was held out of the Spartans' spring game with an undisclosed injury.

Him missing the spring game seems like it would be related to his stroke, while it is unclear what caused him to miss the final few games of 2016.
