According to the Detroit Free Press, all the injuries finally caught up to Kyle Ahrens.

This time, it is a problem with the Michigan State senior's Achilles that shut him down for an unknown amount of time.

We all love the MSU men's basketball team and really appreciate everything that Kyle Ahrens has brought to each and every game.

Ahrens has averaged just 12.8 minutes a game in 16 games this season, well below the 20 plus Izzo expected him to play. He has scored 3.3 points with 1.4 rebounds while shooting 35.5 percent from 3 point range and 41.3 percent overall.

Last year, Ahrens missed four games during the regular season with ongoing back problems and then sat out the NCAA tournament after suffering a severe left ankle sprain in the Big Ten tournament championship victory over Michigan.

The decision to sideline Ahrens comes after he played a season low 2 minutes, 27 seconds in the 14th ranked Spartans' 71 to 42 loss at Purdue on Sunday.

Hopefully Ahrens will be back on the court for the Spartans soon. For more on the story, visit the Detroit Free Press.
