Ohio State redshirt freshman LB Justin Hilliard will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn left biceps suffered during practice.

Hilliard's main role is a special teamer and is also listed as a special teamer. Apparently this isn't Hilliard's first biceps injury, as he dealt with a right biceps ailment during the spring.

Ohio State DC Greg Schiano struck a bicyclist with his car early on Thursday morning.

Schiano struck a 26-year-old man with his car at an intersection near Ohio State's practice facility. Authorities were called to the scene at 6:50 a.m. Thursday morning. The injured pedestrian was subsequently hospitalized for a head trauma. He is in stable condition. Schiano, himself, came away from the accident without injury. "From a university perspective, our concern is with the young man who was injured. Our focus is on offering all the support for that individual that we can at this time," said an Ohio State spokesman on Thursday night.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore WR Noah Brown "is fluid off the line and challenges defenses with very good speed for his size," writes NFL.com's Chad Reuter.

Brown caught five passes for 74 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-24 win over Oklahoma after entering that contest with only five catches in 15 career games. Brown had only one catch during his freshman year and then a leg injury cost him the entire 2015 season. "Now healthy again, Brown used his strong, 6-foot-2, 218-pound frame to separate from Oklahoma cornerbacks in the end zone, and made an amazing catch for one of his scores," Reuter wrote. "He and QB J.T. Barrett will be a dangerous combination throughout the rest of the season."

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that he does not believe that redshirt sophomore WR Noah Brown is up to full speed from last season's broken leg.

Well, that is terrifying for the Big Ten. Brown sat out the 2015 season with a broken leg and we might not see him truly hit his stride until later in the campaign. The 6-foot-2, 222-pound redshirt sophomore busted out against Oklahoma over the weekend, hauling in five passes for 74 yards and a quartet of touchdowns.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore WR Noah Brown caught five passes for 74 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-24 win over Oklahoma.

Three of Brown's four touchdown catches came in a magnetic second quarter. J.T. Barrett found him for scores of four yards, 37 yards and 21 yards before the two squads hit the locker room. It is nice to see the 6-foot-2, 222-pounder finally start to make a positive contribution. He missed the entirety of the 2015 season with a broken leg suffered last August and had posted relatively quiet results through the first two games of the 2016 season.
Sep 18 - 12:56 AM

Ohio State redshirt junior QB J.T. Barrett completed 14-of-20 passes for 152 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-24 win over Oklahoma.

While Barrett didn't post megawatt passing numbers in terms of yardage, Ohio State was in control for almost the entirety of Saturday's contest. All four of Barrett's touchdown passes went to Noah Brown. The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder also rushed for 74 yards on 11 carries. He is off to a hot start for the 2016 campaign, having thrown for 550 yards with a 10/1 TD/INT ratio. He has now thrown for at least four touchdowns in two of his three games played. The Buckeyes will be on bye next weekend and will next see the field when they host Rutgers on October 1.
Sep 18 - 12:45 AM

Saturday's game between Ohio State and Oklahoma will not kick until 9:10 EST due to weather concerns.

Thunderstorms in the area are forcing the delay, here. We will update accordingly if there are any further weather delays, but as is, expect this showdown between traditional powers to kick off at 9:10 EST.

Ohio State junior RB/WR Curtis Samuel "mixes his gears with controlled movements to deceive defenders and has the finishing speed to create big plays," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Samuel, the type of hybrid athlete Urban Meyer covets, destroyed Bowling Green on Saturday with 13 carries for 84 yards (6.5 ypc) and one touchdown along with nine catches for 177 yards (19.7 ypr) and two scores. "Aside from his versatility, the first aspects of Samuel's game that stand out are his vision and understanding of weak spots in the defense," Brugler wrote. "As a ball carrier, he is quick to feel openings and clear holes. As a receiver, he runs his routes to proper depth to attack soft zones and give his quarterback a clear target." Samuel will continue to be used as a hybrid WR/RB who helps out starting redshirt freshman RB Mike Weber.

Ohio State redshirt freshman RB Mike Weber rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Saturday's 48-3 win over Tulsa.

Not the most spectacular game for Weber, but he did a nice job overall, averaging 5.4 YPC. The 5-foot-10, 215-pounder scored on a one-yard rush with a little more than a minute remaining in the third quarter, his first collegiate touchdown. He has rushed for 228 yards through two contests.
Sep 10 - 8:21 PM

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that redshirt senior WR Corey Smith is dealing with a hamstring injury.

The hamstring injury kept Smith from playing in Saturday's blowout win over Bowling Green. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound redshirt senior's status for this weekend's showdown with Tulsa has yet to be determined. Smith took a medical redshirt for 2015 after he broke his leg against Indiana during the first weekend of October a year ago, but this current hamstring ailment is unrelated to that previous season-ender.
Sep 8 - 1:25 PM

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer believes junior DE Tyquan Lewis has turned himself into an elite player.

Lewis started all 13 games last season across from Joey Bosa, registering 14 tackles for loss and eight sacks. He is one of the most veteran members of the school's defensive unit and will be relied on to make a major impact this season.
Sep 5 - 12:01 PM

Ohio State redshirt freshman RB Mike Weber rushed for 136 yards on 19 carries in the school's 77-10 win over Bowling Green.

Weber led the team in carries, and will likely split reps with Curtis Samuel moving forward. Web's longest run went for 18 yards. Ohio State's offense should be more stable and consistent this season.
Sep 3 - 5:04 PM

Ohio State junior RB Curtis Samuel rushed for 84 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in the school's 77-10 win over Bowling Green.

Samuel was a real playmaker as a receiver, catching nine passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns, including one 79 yard catch and run. The Buckeyes lost a trio of playmakers in Ezekiel Elliott, Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller. There should be plenty of targets for Samuel in both the running and passing game.
Sep 3 - 4:53 PM

Ohio State redshirt junior QB J.T. Barrett completed 21 of 31 attempts for 349 yards, six touchdowns and one interception in the school's 77-10 win over Bowling Green.

Barrett added another rushing touchdown. Some dropped on Barrett after last season's disappointment, but now he has a year under his belt with the offensive coaching staff and more stability at the position. Barrett and Curtis Samuel connected nine times for a couple of huge downfield plays. Barrett should be considered a darkhorse Heisman contender.
Sep 3 - 4:35 PM

The Columbus Dispatch's Bill Rabinowitz hears that the leg injury that knocked Ohio State redshirt junior DL Tracy Sprinkle out of Saturday's game against Bowling Green is not an ACL injury.

Sprinkle was carted off the field in the first quarter of Saturday's win over Bowling Green after appearing to injure his knee. While Rabinowitz is reporting that it will likely require surgery to repair, the 6-foot-3, 283-pounder might have dodged an ACL bullet. Further details still to come.
