Pettrey to Have MCL Surgery

Unsurprisingly, Aaron Pettrey will be out for at least the rest of the regular season thanks to a torn MCL suffered during a cheap chop block against NMSU.

Pettrey hopes to return in time for a bowl game. In the meantime, Devin Barclay will handle the FG duties and possibly kickoffs depending on what Tressel decides to do. Ben Buchanan has been listed as the 2nd team kickoff specialist but Barclay faired well last weekend so we'll have to wait and see how this turns out.

Pettrey was ranked 4th in scoring in the Big Ten though he made just 13 of 19 FG tries. Barclay went 1 for 3 last weekend.
