Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal doesn’t seem sure if defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux will be able to play in Columbus on Saturday.

Cristobal classified Thibodeaux as “day-to-day” and also said that they’re being cautious with him at practice this week.

Thibodeaux suffered an ankle sprain during the Ducks Week 1 win over Fresno State and x-rays came back negative after he was tested for having a broken ankle. He returned to the game for a brief period after the injury, then exited for good and was seen on the sideline in a walking boot.

Before getting hurt, Thibodeaux had 2 tackles (1 solo), plus a sack and forced fumble. His best overall season came in 2020 when he finished with 38 total tackles (23 solo) with 3 sacks.

If he’s not able to go on Saturday, it’ll make stopping the Buckeyes vaunted offense that much tougher.
