Former Alabama transfer Chad Lindsay came to Ohio State during this past offseason, but two games into the season, the center has decided to hang up his cleats and will be stepping away from football citing unspecified injuries. Lindsay was listed as the backup at center under Jacoby Boren for the first two games, and heading into the season, was expected to contribute in his final year of eligibility.
While it wasn't revealed to the public about what sort of injury Lindsay had, the decision appears to be final. Although Lindsay never made it onto the field, he was still competing for the starting center spot with the aforementioned Boren on an offensive line that has struggled tremendously in its first two games against Navy and most recently in a loss to Virginia Tech at home.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and his staff were already working on trying to improve the offensive line play and now with this most recent news about Lindsay (including the loss of Evan Lisle to injury as well), it makes things much more complicated as far as depth of the line is concerned.
