Indiana’s season took another lump in Saturday’s blowout loss to Ohio State. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, another key player sustained an injury in the process.

This time, it was backup quarterback Jack Tuttle. Already starting in place of Michael Penix Jr., Tuttle was injured while throwing a touchdown early in the game. He stood tall in the pocket and delivered a strike but paid the price.

Tuttle would be relieved by 2 quarterbacks and missed a number of drives. He returned to action against Ohio State but would not finish the game with the Buckeyes in control of a big lead for much of the game.

After the loss, head coach Tom Allen discussed the injury. He indicated the x-rays for Tuttle were negative, but the quarterback will still need an MRI.

Allen hinted at a potential ligament issue and said Tuttle is dealing with a lot of pain:

Allen also indicated IU will have to implement a plan for QB Donaven McCulley, a true freshman who was next in line after Tuttle went down:
