After a collision with a cameraman between the opening kickoff in Ann Arbor and the first play of The Game aggravated an "ongoing meniscus injury," Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett left in the third quarter after a second down scramble.
Thursday, Tim May of The Columbus Dispatch reported "several insiders" said Barrett underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Sunday.
Barrett is expected to start Saturday against Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship after returning to practice earlier this week. Urban Meyer has upped backup Dwayne Haskins' practice reps this week in preparation of Barrett being unable to go Saturday, but Meyer said Barrett has been cleared to play on his Thursday radio show.
"He's going to play in the game," Meyer said.
Ohio State declined to confirm the report when asked by Eleven Warriors.
