The depth behind Ohio State running backs Carlos Hyde and Boom Herron just got a little thinner (again) for this weekend’s game against Indiana.
Earlier this week, rarely-used back Jaamal Berry was on the receiving end of an indefinite suspension following two misdemeanor charges of assault and disorderly conduct. Now, the Buckeyes will be down another running back because of injuries. Luke Fickell said today that Jordan Hall was doubtful for tomorrow’s game against the Hoosiers as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.
“Jordan is probably doubtful,” Fickell said. “I don’t think Jordan is going to make it. He hasn’t quite turned the corner with his ankle.”
Herron is set to start with Hyde, who did not play in last week’s win over Wisconsin, as the backup.
Freshman quarterback Braxton Miller has already turned into the team’s second-leading rusher with 342 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
