Report: John Simon to miss the Michigan-Ohio State game with a bursa sac injury

Could John Simon's four sack performance against Wisconsin be his swan song? - Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Buckeyes' senior captain reportedly will miss the final game of his career with a knee injury.

UPDATE: ESPN is reporting that John Simon will miss the Michigan-Ohio State game with synovial bursa sac injury. Awful way for a great Buckeye to end his career.

Rumor has it that Ohio State senior defensive end has been afflicted with unknown injury and will be a game time decision against Michigan. NBC4 weekend sports reporter Matt Barnes reported on air Friday night the news about Simon and then followed up with a bit more there after on Twitter:

As we told you on-air, we've learned John Simon is likely a game-time decision to play tomorrow with an unspecified injury.

Simon did not attend media interviews, the basketball game tonight with the seniors and we're told did not practice this week.

A few others had pointed out not noticing Simon with the rest of the seniors along with Meyer, but (to Barnes' credit as he also pointed out to a viewer corresponding with him) the senior is such a warrior it'd be hard to imagine him not at least trying to gut it out come Saturday.

Simon has already battled this season through rib injuries, groin problems, a rolled ankle, and a recurring shoulder issue which may well have accounted for what's been a somewhat understated senior season. A week ago against Wisconsin Simon exploded for four sacks leading many to believe he was finally healthy for the first time all season. While it's well regarded that Simon doesn't like to disclose his injuries publicly, it'd be a real shame if the player Urban Meyer has compared favorable to Tim Tebow wasn't at the top of his game in his final The Game of his career much less isn't able to go at all.
