Matt Jones was walked off the field by the Ohio State training staff after suffering an apparent leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Maryland game.

With a little over three minutes remaining in the Buckeyes' matchup with the Terrapins, Jones fell to the turf while blocking for Dallan Hayden. He stayed on the ground while holding his right leg until the team's medical personnel raised him to his feet and assisted him to the sideline.

Jones has dealt with a foot injury in recent weeks but has played through the ailment. At this time, it is unclear as to whether or not that pre-existing injury is what caused the Ohio State offensive lineman to go down after Hayden's run.

Enokk Vimahi replaced Jones after the play for the remainder of the drive, which resulted in a 45-yard field goal for Noah Ruggles.
