Buckeyes’ D-line rotation takes a hit

Tommy Schutt

A player who figured to be a big part of Ohio State’s defensive line rotation has suffered an injury that will keep him off the field for a significant portion of the season.

First reported by 11Warriors.com, and further confirmed by the Columbus Dispatch, Tommy Schutt suffered a broken foot during a recent practice.  As a result, the lineman will miss a period of 6-8 weeks rehabbing the injury.  Head coach Urban Meyer subsequently confirmed that Schutt would be out “until midseason.”

The most optimistic prognosis would get Schutt back in mid-October, a time frame that would mean at least six missed games.

Schutt had been listed as the backup at both nose tackle and defensive tackle on Ohio State’s most recent depth chart, with an “OR” between himself and Chris Carter (NT) and Michael Hill (DT).

As a true freshman in 2012, Schutt played in 10 games.
