There is some very bad news for the Ohio State Buckeyes football program. While Urban Meyer’s squad remains one of the most talented teams in the nation, their depth under center took a serious blow.
According to reports from Eleven Warriors, backup quarterback Stephen Collier suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.
Collier reportedly had surgery this morning, but will miss the 2016 season.

While J.T. Barrett remains the clear starter and leaves the Buckeyes offense in good hands, the injury to Collier means freshman Dwayne Haskins will move up the depth chart. However, Joe Burrow will remain the primary backup.
