Ohio State safety Isaiah Pryor will not play in Saturday's game against Nebraska.

The sophomore safety, who has started all but one of the Buckeyes' first eight games this season, watched from the sideline during warmups and is not dressed for today's game. 

Shaun Wade is expected to start in Pryor's place. Wade warmed up with the first-team defense prior to kickoff. 

An Ohio State spokesperson was unable to immediately confirm why Pryor is not playing today. 

Other candidates to play with Pryor out include Amir Riep, Jahsen Wint and Brendon White. Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and co-defensive coordinator/safeties coach Alex Grinch both said over the past two weeks that the competition to start alongside Jordan Fuller at safety was unsettled.

Kicker Sean Nuernberger, defensive end Tyler Friday and cornerback Cameron Brown are also among the players who are not dressed for Saturday's game.
