Ohio State suffered a loss on the opening kickoff of The Game on Saturday.

Freshman CJ Hicks collided with teammate Xavier Johnson on his return and went down to the ground with an apparent leg injury. Hicks needed to be tended to on the field and was unable to exit the field under his own power. The LB didn’t put any pressure on his right leg as he was being escorted off the field by two trainers.

Hicks, a highly-touted 5-star recruit from Dayton, Ohio chose the Buckeyes over Alabama last year. The 6-foot-3 and 215 lb. freshman joined the Buckeyes in January and made an immediate impact, drawing praise from head coach Ryan Day. Hicks was the No. 1-ranked player in Ohio for the Class of 2022, and his absence will be felt, especially on special teams.
