Haskell Garrett needed assistance from trainers to get to the sideline after sustaining an apparent leg injury Saturday.

Appearing to hyper-extend his left knee on a Maryland drive midway through the third quarter, the 2020 All-American defensive tackle stayed down on the play before heading to the medical tent.

Garrett returned to the sideline shortly thereafter, but did not return to action for the Buckeyes. When Garrett left the game, Ohio State held a 49-10 lead over the Terps.

When asked about Garrett's injury status after the game, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said "we'll see."

"It's something that he's kind of been struggling with, so hopefully we can get him healed up over the bye week," Day said.

Two other key Ohio State players had already left the game earlier in the contest, with Thayer Munford and Cameron Brown both taking trips to the medical tent in the first half. However, Munford returned to the game in the second quarter.

Garrett was credited with one total tackle, a half sack and a half tackle for loss in the 66-17 win Saturday. Garrett entered Saturday with four sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss in the first five games, which placed him among the top two players on the team in both categories.
