Meechie Johnson is unavailable for Ohio State Saturday, but the Buckeyes will get Eugene Brown back against Michigan.

Johnson, who has started the past four games for Ohio State, appeared to suffer a lower-leg injury in the second half of the Buckeyes' 66-64 loss to Rutgers this past Wednesday. The freshman guard, who is averaging 6.0 points per game this season, previously missed three games due to a concussion and facial fracture, which has caused him to wear a protective mask since returning on Jan. 27.

Brown missed the past two games with a toe injury, but the sophomore guard was averaging 7.7 points per game in his last three beforehand. Brown is averaging 3.4 points in 12.1 minutes this season.

Ohio State tips off against Michigan at 6 p.m. at the Crisler Center.
