Ohio State junior LB Curtis Grant (ankle, back) is questionable for the Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson.
Defensive coordinator Luke Fickell told the media on Monday that he wasn't sure if Grant would be able to suit up. Grant missed three Big 10 games in November with the injuries, but returned to record a pair of tackles in the Big 10 Championship Game against Michigan State. Mon, Dec 30, 2013 08:46:00 PM

Ohio State junior LB Curtis Grant (ankle, back) is expected to return on Saturday against Michigan.

Grant sat out victories over Illinois and Indiana due to lingering ankle and back maladies. "We didn't feel like he was quite ready, and we've got to get him back," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. "I think Curtis Grant will be good to go, which we'll need him in this game."

Ohio State is looking for more consistency out of junior LB Curtis Grant this season.

Ohio State envisions Grant as the team's starting middle linebacker in 2013, but that's also the position they were in last season, when Grant lost his job three games in and barely played again. Grant also hasn't practiced since Aug. 7, the day he sustained a concussion while making a tackle in practice. True freshman Mike Mitchell is running with the first team currently, but Grant could usurp him if he can return to the practice field in the next week or so. Grant, a Top-25 prospect in 2011 who was considered the No. 1 LB in the class, has just 10 tackles over two seasons. Ohio State opens on Aug. 31 against Buffalo, a game that will feature at least two NFL linebackers: OSU's Ryan Shazier and Buffalo's Khalil Mack.
