The Ohio State football program received some good news ahead of this weekend’s Big Ten Championship Game.
On Monday, Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer announced that star quarterback J.T. Barrett, who was reportedly injured by a cameraman prior to last weekend’s game against Michigan, is officially “probably” for Saturday’s clash with Wisconsin.
Meyer said Barrett is “really doing a nice job with all the rehab,” according to the Associated Press.
It was an aggravated meniscus injury, which has apparently been lingering all season, that sent Barrett to the locker room.
While Barrett appears to be on track to play on Saturday night, redshirt freshman backup Dwayne Haskins will be ready if he ends up getting the call. Haskins replaced Barrett when the senior was pulled from the win over the Wolverines.
Ohio State won the game, 24-10.
The Buckeyes, currently ranked No. 8, will face off against No. 3 Wisconsin at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
