All of Ohio State's projected starters are expected to be available – except kicker Blake Haubeil – for the team's top-10 matchup with Indiana on Saturday, per a status report released by the program on Friday morning.

Haubeil will sit out his second game in a row with a groin injury, thrusting freshman Jake Seibert into the starting kicker role for the second game in a row. On Thursday, Ryan Day wasn't ready to say whether or not he'd kick for the Buckeyes this weekend, but Haubeil's listing as unavailable ends hope of a return by this weekend.
Cornerback Cameron Brown, defensive lineman Jacolbe Cowan, wide receiver Jaylen Harris, tight end Jake Hausmann and safety Kourt Williams remain unavailable. Long snapper Roen McCullough is the only player deemed a game-time decision.
Four Buckeyes who missed the Week 3 matchup with Rutgers – cornerback Lejond Cavazos, offensive guard Gavin Cupp, running back Marcus Crowley and defensive tackle Jaden McKenzie – are not listed on the status report, meaning they should be available to play this weekend.
Ohio State-Indiana kicks off at noon on Saturday without anybody in the stands. It'll be televised on FOX.
