After sustaining an apparent leg injury in the first half against the Maryland Terrapins, it’s now been announced that right guard Branden Bowen has a fractured fibula and tibia, per his mother on Twitter.

As mentioned in the tweet, Bowen will have surgery to fix the fractures. While recovery time for a fractured fibula/tibia can vary, it seems that Bowen’s season is more than likely finished.

A third-year member of the team with sophomore eligibility, Bowen has started in every game this season for the Ohio State Buckeyes. His first career start was in the season opener against the Indiana Hoosiers—a game where he helped pave the way for 292 rushing yards.

We wish Bowen the best, and hope for a speedy recovery.
