Jenrette gone, at least for now
MSU just announced a pair of roster developments, and they include the fact that projected starting safety Roderick Jenrette "has been asked to take an indefinite leave of absence from the team to address a personal matter," according to an e-mail from associate AD John Lewandowski.
Also, reserve sophomore safety Enrique Shaw has "voluntarily left the football team," according to the same e-mail.
Not sure if Shaw ever would have played much here, but that does take away some depth from an already-thin position.
But the Jenrette thing is potentially big. He was expected to start at free safety and be a big-hitting mainstay in that back end. He's talented. He's been in a yellow jersey for most of camp and has been said to have a minor shoulder injury. The yellow jerseys, though, can also be doled out as punishment for something else. Hopefully we'll get more info soon.
