Former Ohio State running back Mike Weber is scheduled to have an MRI on his knee after injuring it during the Dallas Cowboys’ minicamp on Saturday.
DallasCowboys.com reported that Weber hurt his knee during a Saturday morning jog-through practice. He did not participate in the afternoon practice following the injury.
“They’re going to get an MRI and just kind of check it out,” head coach Jason Garrett said.
Weber is competing for the backup running back job after being selected in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Another former Ohio State running back, Ezekiel Elliott, has the No. 1 spot locked up for the Cowboys.
In 2018, Weber rushed for 954 yards and five touchdowns for the Buckeyes. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry, while Ohio State had one of the most explosive offenses in the B1G. Weber was the team’s second-leading rusher, behind J.K. Dobbins.
Weber rushed for 2,676 yards and 24 touchdowns in three seasons in Columbus.
