COLUMBUS — Ohio State is still dealing with multiple injuries as the top-ranked Buckeyes prepare to return home for a game with Michigan State on Saturday.

Head coach Ryan Day described the state of the team as nothing out of the ordinary.

He said safety Lathan Ransom (leg) is still being assessed, but cornerback Denzel Burke (unidentified) is anticipated to practise this week.

Burke missed the Buckeyes’ victory over Wisconsin the week before, and neither player participated in Ohio State’s 35-16 victory over Rutgers last week.

Josh Proctor, the other starting deep safety, appeared to take a hit to the head in the third quarter and missed most of the second half against Rutgers. However, Day said Proctor is expected to return.

Day stated, “I think he’s going to be ready to roll here.” “We’ll continue to examine it.”

Day responded that each injury scenario is unique when questioned about the team’s health management at this stage of the season, with the 3-6 Spartans on the schedule this week.

Burke and Ransom were marked as out, but starting tight end Cade Stover was thought to be available, though he never played.

Earlier in the season, the same thing occurred with No. 2 receiver Emeka Egbuka.

“We recognise it and say, ‘Well, you could certainly participate in an emergency situation and you are available in case something goes wrong, but you’re not fully recovered,'” Day stated. Therefore, I say, “Hey, liste 20 plays, he could do that, but certainly in the long run, it’d be better off if he didn’t. That’s that’s the conversation. And so, you know, every situation is unique.
