This Ohio State secondary has been plagued by injuries of late, with Cam Brown, Cameron Martinez, and Jordan Hancock all out against Rutgers. Well, things might be getting even worse. Graduate Transfer Tanner McCalister had to be helped off the field, and later returned to the sidelines without his helmet.

McCalister was already dealing with a groin injury this week, so this could simply be a re-aggravation. There has been no word on if McCalister will return in this game, but being on the sidelines without a helmet is probably not a good sign.

With Martinez also out, the Ohio State secondary is suddenly looking very thin. While the team should have no problem getting past Rutgers, these injuries could end up playing a major role in the rest of the Buckeye’s season.
