The Ohio State Buckeyes’ defense lost a large number of players last season, including safety Vonn Bell, who was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the third round in April. Now it looks like they have lost one of Bell’s replacements as Cam Burrows is likely out for the 2016 season.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Burrows had been left off the team’s official roster and now we know why. Head coach Urban Meyer reported that he had re-injured his foot and would likely miss the season.
“Cam Burrows hurt his foot again,” Meyer said. “He’s going to work in our strength room, and it looks like he won’t play football.”
This certainly seems like Burrows might not even continue to play with the Buckeyes. He fell further down the depth chart after Malik Hooker and Damon Webb were named the starters while true freshman Jordan Fuller won the backup spot.
Burrows is a fourth-year junior, who graduated from the school earlier this year. He would be allowed to transfer to another FBS school and retain two years of eligibility if he so pleases.
In three seasons, Burrows has recorded 29 tackles and five pass deflections.
