The Buckeyes face perhaps the biggest game of the regular season this weekend, and they'll have to do it without one of the best players in the nation, as Nick Bosa will be sidelined for Saturday's game against Penn State.
Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa will not play this week. "It's going to be a few more weeks, but we expect him back," Urban Meyer said.— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) September 24, 2018
Meyer said that Bosa assured him that he does want to return to play this season despite his injury, and is not planning to sit out the remainder of the season in preparation of the NFL Draft.
Bosa is recovering from a "core muscle injury" he suffered during Ohio State's win over TCU. Meyer said "we hope to get him back as soon as possible" when discussing the injury last week.
Through his first three games, Bosa totaled four sacks, six tackles for loss and 14 total tackles while also recovering a fumble for a touchdown and forcing a fumble resulting in a touchdown
Bosa is one of the top defensive linemen and overall players in the country and is expected to be a top-five pick, and perhaps No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
