It may be Ohio State’s bye week this week, but bad news has struck the Buckeyes.
One of the team’s top recruits back in 2015, five-star linebacker Justin Hilliard, tore his left biceps last week in practice and found out the severity of the injury yesterday according to elevenwarriors.com. Hilliard will be out for the remainder of 2016.

The redshirt freshman has been a contributor on special teams this season for the Buckeyes, recording four tackles in 2016, all against Bowling Green in the team’s season-opener. Hilliard is also listed as a backup linebacker on the team’s depth chart.
He was out for most of spring practice due to a right biceps injury.
