Ohio State redshirt junior RB Mike Weber (quadriceps) was cleared to play against Michigan this weekend.

Weber did not play in last week's win over Maryland despite being in uniform after he suffered a quadriceps injury late in the week. Weber will spell J.K. Dobbins in this weekend's crucial game against Michigan.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said after Saturday's win at Maryland that redshirt junior RB Mike Weber is dealing with a quadriceps injury.

While Meyer did not provide any information with regards to the severity of the injury, it does explain why Weber did not play despite being in uniform. The redshirt junior has rushed for 711 yards and four touchdowns on 127 carries this season. J.K. Dobbins was the Buckeyes' workhorse Saturday afternoon, accounting for 203 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries. Ohio State closes out its regular season Nov. 24 against Michigan.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 28-of-38 passes for 405 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 59 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 52-51 overtime win over Maryland.

A fantastic individual performance by Haskins, in a game that OSU tried to lose seemingly 100 times. The redshirt sophomore made his share of mistakes through the first three quarters -- including a pick-six thrown on Ohio State's first drive of the second half -- before stepping into the phone booth and emerging as Superman. He accounted for three of his six touchdowns in a wild fourth quarter that saw the two squads combine for 35 points. Michigan looms next on the Buckeyes' schedule, just one awesome game in what's going to be a loaded holiday slate for Week 13.

Ohio State sophomore RB J.K. Dobbins rushed for 203 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries in Saturday's 52-51 overtime win over Maryland.

With the Buckeyes playing sloppy, uninspired football for much of the game, it was up to Dobbins and QB Dwayne Haskins to will OSU to a win to keep their chances of a Playoff berth alive. For his part, Dobbins' 203 yards on the ground were good for a career-best mark. While this was just his third 100-yard game of the campaign, he has gone for 150-plus in two of his last three contests and looks to be in sharp form as Ohio State heads into The Game. OSU figures to run Dobbins until his legs fall off against Michigan next weekend.

Ohio State redshirt junior RB Mike Weber (undisclosed) has not played in Saturday's game against Maryland.

According to the ABC broadcast crew Weber has not played due to an injury that the team refused to disclose. As a result J.K. Dobbins has seen most of the playing time at running back, racking up 32 carries in the first three-plus quarters of the game. Weber has rushed for 711 yards and four touchdowns on 127 carries this season.
Nov 17 - 3:02 PM

Ohio State redshirt senior K Sean Nuernberger (groin) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Maryland.

Nuernberger has not seen the field since Oct. 6 due to a pesky groin injury. Blake Haubeil has been booting it up in his place. We will pass along word if the redshirt senior runs into kind of a setback before kickoff, but at this juncture, expect him to be out there against the Terrapins.
Nov 15 - 4:26 PM

Ohio State sophomore LB Baron Browning (undisclosed) will not play on Saturday against Maryland.

Browning also missed Saturday's game against Michigan State with the undisclosed injury. There's no timetable for a return at this point.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Ohio State redshirt junior RB Mike Weber as one of his risers after his performance against Michigan State on Saturday.

A 104 yards day with a score on 22 carries is a nice day. It's amplified when you consider how dominant Michigan State has been at stopping the run this year, however. "Weber has terrific size, next-level power and good short-area quickness," writes Pauline. "He considered entering last April’s draft before returning to Columbus, and when Weber decides to go pro he will be great value outside the top 100 choices."

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that the university is considering legal action against Stadium reporter Brett McMurphy.

McMurphy reported on Tuesday that the precipitating incident that led to the transfer of OSU WR Trevon Grimes was an exchange with former WR coach Zach Smith in September of 2017 in which Smith allegedly used racial epithets. This was told to McMurphy by Grimes' father. The wideout transferred to Florida last winter. Meyer is being accused of helping to cover up all of this reported ugliness. He responded to that accusation on Tuesday, calling it, "the most preposterous thing I've ever heard" and then passing along the kicker -- that Ohio State was exploring legal avenues in which to possibly go after McMurphy. If you'll recall, it was also McMurphy's reporting which in part opened the door for Meyer's three-game suspension to open the season.

The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs projects the Dolphins to select Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins with the 18th pick in his updated mock draft.

This would be interesting. Ryan Tannehill has been injured often -- and inconsistent when healthy -- and Brock Osweiler is obviously not a long-term answer. Haskins has been very impressive, and many believe he's the best quarterback prospect in this class. "Haskins is a high risk pick, given his small sample size," writes Crabbs. "But he’s shown enough of all the desired traits for a starting NFL quarterback that he can’t slide forever. If he comes out, he’ll very likely be a first round pick."

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects the Giants to take Ohio State junior DE Nick Bosa with the first pick in his midseason mock draft.

Rang projects the first four picks to be defensive lineman, with Alabama's Quinnen Williams going second to the Raiders, Houston's Ed Oliver going third to the 49ers, and Clemson's Clelin Ferrell going fourth to the Bills. As for Bosa going first, it wouldn't be a surprise at all, and it appears to just come down to which team gets that first pick.

Per Pro Football Focus, Ohio State sophomore CB Shaun Wade allowed zero receptions on five targets in Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Wade also recorded one interception and pass-breakup a piece. The sophomore corner was dominant in this matchup and helped exacerbate Michigan State's passing game flaws. He has two interceptions on the season as well as a forced fumble. He has an easier draw against Maryland next week.
Nov 11 - 11:46 AM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Dwayne Haskins completed 24-of-39 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 26-6 win over Michigan State.

The Buckeyes might have come out with the win, here, but this was not a particularly impressive performance by Haskins. After spending much of the season in the thick of the Heisman race, our general feel is that the redshirt sophomore has started to fall behind Tua Tagovailoa and Kyler Murray. He will try to get back on a statistically-productive track against Maryland next weekend.
Nov 10 - 4:38 PM

Ohio State redshirt junior RB Mike Weber rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's 26-6 win over Michigan State.

Weber (5'10/214) had not rushed for more than 100 yards since OSU's season-opener before he finally busted over the century mark against Sparty on Saturday. His two-yard touchdown run came near the end of the game and had no tangible impact on the outcome of the contest. The redshirt junior will look to put together another respectable performance against Maryland next weekend. Then it will be time for The Game.
Nov 10 - 4:35 PM

Ohio State sophomore LB Baron Browning (undisclosed) did not dress for Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Per Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch, Browning sustained the injury during the practice week. Expect a more concrete update in the coming days.
