Alright, Haskins it is.

Hope Martell is ready to play at a moment's notice. And I hope that Burrow recovers quick and feels better soon.

Go Bucks.

What are the chances that a 3rd string QB is ever gonna have to play, and be expected to do well?

Technically Martell would still be the 4th string QB if we made it to him going off the Miller/Barrett/Jones situation, but I get your point that you never know! There is a real chance tho that Haskins will have to take meaningful snaps at somepoint this year due to a concussion on something similar knocking JT out of a game.

All I can say is, I'm glad Beck/Warriner is not leading that room anymore

Hope Joe recovers in time to play some mopup football this season, though at this point Haskins seems to have won the backup job for sure.

I think we've long understood that with all the talent in the quarterback room someone was going to transfer to find playing time. Burrow looks more likely now to be that transfer.

Every injury is different obviously, but as a point of reference Deshaun Watson broke his hand a few years ago and was out 5 weeks.  So its possible Burrow can come back, but at that point I'd have to think Haskins will be pretty entrenched.

HS
MiamiBuckeye's picture

That's a good point, but wasn't Deshaun already considered the starter when that happened?

Getting injured while you're in a contest for 2nd/3rd place is a different matter.

Bah. I feel for the kid. I really liked Burrow's game and was hoping he would get significant playing time this year because I think he would light up the stat card next year as a starter. You have to think he's not going to gain that #2 spot back now and will be a transfer candidate come spring time. Damn. 

Heal up, Joe. Best of luck.

I do agree that it is very likely Haskins gets a bunch of game reps the next 6 weeks, and that it will definitely be hard to switch up the back-up battle mid-season.

There's no positive here really, certainly not one for Burrow, but this does allow the coaching staff the ability to delay any decision that could piss someone off and lead to a transfer. I mean, one of those guys had to be the third guy in. I'm just being Mr Bright Side because this sucks.

CincyBuck's picture

Well...  if we believed every rumor without credence to the source, Les Miles would be a (likely former) Michigan HC, Saban would be gunning for multiple Nattys at Texas, Barrett would be out with a broken hand, Florida's HC would be facing bestiality charges, multiple schools would've received the death penalty, and so on.  So...  maybe it's still best to approach rumors with a fair degree of skepticism.

But yeah, sucks to hear about Burrow.  Going to be hard to beat out Haskins once he gets going.  But I have a feeling we haven't heard the last from him -- whether that's at Ohio State, or (more likely) elsewhere.

Hope his recovery goes well and he is able to continue to develop.  Now we will for sure see if Haskins is as good as advertised, because the schedule looks to offer a fair amount of mop-up duty for someone in September.  Sad  for Burrow.  Haskins hype has been out-shining him, but he showed great touch, poise, and decision-making last year, in actual NCAA FBS football games, regardless the competition.

What really stinks is that it is his throwing hand. I thought the black jersey signified that you can't be hit.  It will be interesting to see if it was a finger.  Meyer's recruiting pitch can continue to top rated QB's. You are one play away no matter how deep we are. 

HS
703Buckeye's picture

Contact still happens. I can't recall who it was but a NFL qb hurt his hand letting it come down on the helmet of a defender who got in his face in practice. While defenders can't tackle a QB in practice, many are encouraged to get in the QB's face to simulate pressure.

No. The rushers are constantly told to not come close to the QBs throwing motion.

I didn't say they were told to get into their motion but I have seen many cases as a player and fan where the defense is encouraged to harass the QB without making contact.

JacksonOhio5's picture

I would guess he just hit his hand on a helmet while following through on a throw.  Even if a defender pulls up and doesn't hit him, they'd still be close enough for this to happen.

Whatever happened, it's very unfortunate and I hate it for Burrow.

Go Bucks!

HS

That sounds like the most logical assessment, JO5. I read where he will only be out 4-6 weeks so I wonder if a medical red shirt would be out of the question at that point. 

HS

Burrow already used his redshirt season in 2015. He isn't eligible for a medical redshirt.

He could theoretically apply for a 6th year waiver (2020) after 2019.

Big Joe Burrow guy, this sucks.

Wonder if it means Martell doesn't redshirt now....

HS
BrutusB's picture

Barring two major injuries in the first ~2 months of the season, this shouldn't affect Martell.  Joe will be back as the third-stringer by Week 6ish.

HS
Trapper99's picture

My guess is Martell still redshirts, and Burrow either medical redshirts or transfers. No chance Martell sees the field in mop up duty...only way he sees the field is if JT is knocked out for the year in one of the first two games. 

HS
cdub4's picture

Burrow can't medical redshirt. He already used his redshirt year.

HS
Trapper99's picture

My understanding was a medical redshirt could get a person a 6th year of eligibility...can that only be used in the case of injury happening in final year of eligibility?

HS
BUCKAROOTIMESTWO's picture

A 6th year of eligibility can be applied for, only after all other eligibility has been exhausted (as happened with Corey Smith)!

Man that really sucks for Joe, you hate to see anyone from any school get hurt this close to the start of the season.

This just illuminated the need for our offense to click so that young Mr Haskins can get some game reps in.

hetuck's picture

1. Start putting foam skull caps on the DL. 

2. As Woody would say, "It's time for the young turk." Haskins just came from Ankara instead of Maryland. 

3. Martell will become a change-of-pace QB in relief of Haskins. Teams will have to take precious limited time to prepare for his skill set. Google highlights of Xander Diamont to see what I mean (some painful.)

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

HS
BUCKAROOTIMESTWO's picture

Joe is a bright kid and a very good student; he's on target to graduate May 2018.

Folks fail to realize that because the players are required to do Summer School (generally 6 hrs, can be 9), this accelerates progression towards a degree.  

For the players that really want their degree, it can often be had in 3.5 years and in some cases, 3 years  as Collier did. If he'd chosen to grad transfer, Collier would've had 2 years to play elsewhere.

Keep in mind, there are guys that enter OSU with AP credits. I'd heard that Trout was a high achieving student, as a result, with his degree in hand.  He's eligible to play for Cincy this year!

HS
CowCat's picture

I'd hate to lose Burrows, but if he graduates and Haskins is entrenched as the starter, it might happen.

It would be a challenge for him to start elsewhere, though, given he won't graduate until May. Wouldn't this keep him out of the spring practice picture for another team?

Glad it's relatively minor, wish Joe the best...

Hmmm, losing one of our QB's two weeks before our first game - I've heard this scenario before ...... Didn't that season end up with a really big trophy in the Woody Hayes Centre at the end of that same season ??  Can you say, "Deja Vu" ??? 

But, seriously - get well soon, Joe !!

I know the article says indefinitely, but anyone have a clue on a timeline here? Any precedent set before for QB's being sidelined for broken bones? Or does us not knowing which bone/severity make it too tough to guess?

4-6 weeks more than likely. It's certainly not season ending.

Having been stacked at QBack looks like crystal ball genius. 

Get better fast, Joe B.

You guys are talking about John like he tore his heart valve or something! He's more than likely out 5-7 weeks. He'll be back in time to get some action in blowouts. There's still soo much time left and soo many opportunities for him to show the coaches he should be the starter next year. And he's def not transferring anywhere. Nothing has happened for him to have to transfer! lol We have to stop being so dramatic as a fan base.

I never like seeing a young man on any team get injured after working so hard on his craft, especially one of our own.  I have always been a fan of Joe Burrow and look forward to his making a fast and complete recovery.  Go Bucks!

I hate this. I have been a fan of Burrow sonce his senior year when he eviscerated Steubenville's defense. I hope he stays strong and comes back and his performance gets him back where we thought he was.

Stinks, from what we saw the kid has some great talent. Hope he feels better.

I think we are all overacting. He will be back before we know it. Martell will still RS, burrow will come back and I think him and Simba will mix up the mopping duties. I only see him being gone for 4 weeks which puts him back at 3rd game. Mop up duty time. THE END
