Ohio State redshirt sophomore wide receiver Parris Campbell left the Northwestern game in the fourth quarter on a cart due to an apparent ankle injury.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said Monday the former St. Vincent-St. Mary's product suffered a high ankle sprain and would be "questionable" to play Saturday against Nebraska.
Meyer upgraded Campbell during his weekly Thursday appearance on the Urban Meyer Coach's Show, saying Campbell "might give it a go" against the Cornhuskers.
Wide receivers coach Zach Smith appeared later in the show and revealed how Campbell has been telling Smith he plans to play since Sunday afternoon.
On the season, Campbell has 96 yards on 10 receptions. He also has 32 yards and a touchdown on four rush attempts.
No. 10 Nebraska at No. 6 Ohio State kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
