Ohio State has received an injury scare with star quarterback Justin Fields in each of the past two games.

Against Penn State, Fields took one hard hit to his leg that appeared to tweak his knee. One week later, Fields was forced to leave the game against Michigan after aggravating that injury. Thankfully, he did return to the field against the Wolverines and threw a touchdown soon after.

Following the win over Michigan, Fields revealed that he had suffered a sprained MCL in his knee during the game against Penn State. He switched to a bigger brace against Michigan after reaggravating the injury.

After the injury concerns from last week’s game, it cast a bit of a question mark on Fields’ status and overall health heading into the B1G Championship. Fortunately, head coach Ryan Day indicated that the status of Fields’ knee has been given a “100%” go from Ohio State’s training staff.

Lantern Sports shared Day’s update from Friday’s B1G Championship press conference:

Day also indicated the situation with Fields is drastically different from the one Ohio State went through with J.T. Barrett in 2017. He also pointed out that the dings to Fields have come on passing plays, so the Buckeyes will not try to be overly cautious in their playcalling.

Dan Hope with 11 Warriors shared Day’s comments:

Hopefully, Fields stays in the game all 60 minutes and continues his excellent play.
