With a 28-21 lead in the fourth quarter against arch rival Michigan, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett was bent backwards in a pile of opposing defenders. Barrett immediately lay motionless on the Ohio Stadium turf as trainers ran out to assist them.

The on-staff medical attendees went as far as to inflate an air cast for the Buckeyes signal caller's leg after Barrett appeared to be favoring his leg. 97.1 The Fan's Dom Tiberi described the injury as a right ankle one.

Without Barrett, who had to be carted off, the Buckeyes will turn to redshirt sophomore Cardale Jones. Jones had been pegged to be the backup for Braxton Miller before losing the No. 2 position to Barrett a little more than a week before Miller would be lost to injury.

We'll have more as it's available.
