The list has been lengthened. And it's a dubious one — spring practice injuries.
Vonn Bell and Jalin Marshall are two potential starters who've already suffered spring-ending injuries. Now tight end Jeff Heuerman has pushed that number to three, head coach Urban Meyer said on Tuesday.
Heuerman suffered a sprained foot in practice last week and reportedly underwent surgery at the Cleveland Clinic on Monday. Meyer said the senior will be in a cast/boot for six weeks and should be full speed for summer conditioning in June.
The injury leaves Junior Nick Vannett and redshirt freshman Marcus Baugh as the Buckeyes' top two tight ends.
