Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett exits game with apparent leg injury

The QB was taken back to the locker room.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Late in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett scrambled away from pressure, and was tackled short of the line by a pair of Michigan defenders. The fifth-year senior grabbed his right leg almost immediately, but tried to stand up and move on to the next play, before having to go down and have Ohio State personnel come out and take a look.

Barrett needed help getting off of the field, and eventually went back to the locker room. FOX reported that apparently, Barrett has been dealing with an ongoing meniscus issue, where the cartilage moves out of place. Presumably that is what the Buckeye trainers and medical staff will be addressing when Barrett is out of the game.

In his stead, Dwayne Haskins entered the game. Later in the drive, Ohio State offensive lineman Jamarco Jones was rolled up on by two Michigan defenders and was replaced by Josh Alabi.
