Ohio State will be without one of its starting offensive linemen for the Big Ten championship.
Urban Meyer said redshirt senior right guard Demetrius Knox will not play on Saturday against Northwestern due to a "Lisfranc issue" in his foot that he suffered late in Ohio State's 62-39 win against Michigan.
"It's a tough injury," Meyer said on Sunday's Big Ten teleconference. "He's done so much for this team in his career here, so it's a tough loss for us. We've got to regroup and put together that position."
In Knox's place, redshirt freshman Wyatt Davis will start at right guard, Meyer said.
"He's had a tremendous couple months of practice for us, so we're confident he'll be ready," Meyer said.
Knox suffered the foot injury with less than two minutes remaining in Saturday's game and was carted off the field. He raised his arms and gave an "O-H" to the crowd a couple times as the cart drove him up the tunnel. It was the final home game of Knox's five-year career at Ohio State.

Knox started eight games last season after Branden Bowen suffered a broken leg. He started every regular season game this season.
