Ohio State will reportedly be without one of its defensive backs for the remainder of the 2020 season.

According to Austin Ward with Lettermen Row, the Buckeyes will be missing Cameron Brown for the rest of the season. Ward is reporting that Brown suffered a torn Achilles in the win over Penn State that will require surgery on Tuesday:

The speedy Ohio State cornerback will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn Achilles on Saturday in the win over Penn State, multiple sources confirmed to Lettermen Row. The junior went down with the non-contact injury while in coverage for the Buckeyes, and he’s scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday.

Brown had one tackle on the 2020 season but was a regular contributor for the Ohio State secondary. As a sophomore in 2019, Brown posted 14 tackles with two tackles for loss.

Ohio State still has plenty of talent defensively, but there’s no denying Brown’s presence will be missed by the Buckeyes. Considering the issues of playing during the pandemic in 2020, every team would like to have all bodies healthy and available at all times.

Hopefully Brown’s surgery goes smoothly and he will be able to make a full recovery.
