After a solid performance last week against Michigan State, when he rushed for 104 yards on 22 carries (4.7 avg) with a touchdown, it was expected that Mike Weber would have a role once again today, like he has all season.
However, that did not come to be, as Weber was forced to sit out of the action due to a quad bruise, according to Urban Meyer.

Weber's absence freed up more carries for J.K. Dobbins, who certainly answered the bell, despite a poorly-timed fumble in the red zone.
Dobbins carried the ball a career-high 37 times for a career-high 203 yards and a touchdown, to help propel the Buckeyes to a victory.
Although there has been no official word on Weber's status for next week, as he was apparently pretty close to playing today, he should be active and ready to go for the clash against Michigan.
