Ohio State Buckeyes five-star freshman receiver Torrance Gibson made some fans panic yesterday as he was seen walking off the practice field in a walking boot. Fortunately, Ari Wasserman of Cleveland.com shed some light on the actual nature of the injury.
A team spokesman said that Gibson, a former star quarterback at Florida’s American Heritage High School, near Miami, only suffered what is being called a “minor leg injury” and isn’t expected to miss extended time.
That’s great news for the Buckeyes, who could use Gibson’s 6-foot-5, 207 pound frame at wide receiver as the team looks to win a second straight national championship under coach Urban Meyer.
If Gibson can be ready for Ohio State’s season opener in Blacksburg against the Virginia Tech Hokies on September 7, all the better.
Of course, Campus Sports will update Gibson’s recovery as more information becomes available.
