Buckeyes might be down to two healthy RBs

As Ohio State continues its march toward an unbeaten but postseason-less 2012 season, the Buckeyes could find themselves with one fewer backfield option against Wisconsin.

Head coach Urban Meyer confirmed during his radio show Thursday that running back Bri’onte Dunn suffered a knee injury during practice this week.  The injury leaves Dunn questionable for next Saturday’s game with the Badgers.

It would also leave the Buckeyes with just two healthy backs — leading rusher (non-Braxton Miller division) Carlos Hyde and Rod Smith.  The good news, though, is that the Buckeyes are off this weekend, which will obviously give the freshman extra time to receover.

Dunn is currently third among OSU running backs in rushing yards, and was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for his play last weekend in the win over Illinois.

    I’m a life long buckeye fan and even I don’t believe that Alabama is lucky we won’t play them this year. Next year could be a different story! Hail Urban FRANK Meyer!!!!

    Good thing we only need 2 running backs and Braxton to beat up on Wisc and AACC. Appears next year we will have the most stacked stable of running backs in college football. With Jordan Hall mecially redshirting this year, El Guapo and company coming back and the studs coming in – I am starting to feel sorry for the B1G!

    They have played one of the nation’s weakest schedules, yet everyone still loves the Bucks. It must be Urban “I never met a cheerleader I didn’t like” Meyer that keeps them and Braxton “I have trouble putting sentences together” Miller relevant. Their remaining games are a gimme…where is the great plot or story here? What are their signature wins?

    OSU is far from the best team. They are by far the most overrated team,and they will never compete with the SEC,even with Urban Liar as their coach. BUCKS SUCK!

    It really puzzles me to see people like 10of14 and spunhead73 exposing the total lack of anything worthwhile in their lives. How could anyone with a normal, exciting life have enough time to read sports stories about teams they do not even like and waste time spewing venom about them? My life is certainly too full even to imagine nonsense like that. As for the rankings, I doubt that many people would take the word of amateurs with time to burn over the professional sports writers who get paid for their expertise. That’s why they do the polls, and you people write anonymous comments that influence nobody.

    Rharris, wake up Woody; you can’t be serious. Not all, but many of the “professionals” you speak of are speculators who assume much of what they write. I have my sources on the Urban “deal” and that’s it. When someone is coaching on the same team, I believe that trumps your love affair with a “simple coach” who you are goo, goo over.
