Jeff Heuerman injury: Ohio State TE out for spring after surgery

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

The senior tight end will miss time after undergoing a procedure following a sprained left foot.

Per Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman had successful surgery at the Cleveland Clinic on Monday and will miss the remainder of spring practice. According to May, Heuerman suffered a left foot sprain last week and isn't expected back until late June following the procedure.

After declining to pursue a professional football career following last season, Heuerman is expected to be an important part an Ohio State offense losing starting tailback Carlos Hyde, starting h-back/WR Corey Brown, and basically the entire offensive line.

Last season Heuerman caught 26 passes for 466 yards and 4 TDs, easily the most prolific season by an Ohio State tight end in many years. With Heuerman on the pine, expect principle backup Nick Vannett and redshirt freshman Marcus Baugh to see the lion's share of action at the tight end position for the scarlet and gray teams during later this month's spring game.
