(AP) Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook says his shoulder is feeling great after a late-season injury.
Cook missed the Ohio State game because of a sore right shoulder, and the pain still lingered through the regular-season finale against Penn State and the Big Ten title game.
Having some down time and nearly a month between games was a huge benefit for the star senior.
"The time off, being home, rehabbing it was great," Cook said. "That was crucial."
Cook, Michigan State's all-time winningest quarterback, has thrown for 2,921 yards and 24 touchdowns this season.
