Ohio State Football: Joe Burrow Breaks Bone In Throwing Hand

|

Joe Burrow will miss the start of the Ohio State football season.

According to a report from Eleven Warriors, the redshirt sophomore will be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a broken bone in his throwing hand.

Burrow, a former four-star recruit, was fighting to be the team’s primary backup quarterback.

Now that Burrow will be out for the foreseeable future, backup duties will fall to Dwayne Haskins, a redshirt freshman. If five-star true freshman Tate Martell is not redshirted, he will fall in line next on the depth chart.

While Buckeyes depth under center does take a hit because of the injury to Burrow, the offense remains in good hands thanks to veteran signal-caller J.T. Barrett.

Ohio State opens its 2017 campaign on Thursday, Aug. 31 on the road against Indiana.
