It appears the Ohio State offensive line has taken another big hit to its depth.
According to a report by Eleven Warriors, Buckeye offensive lineman Demetrius Knox suffered a broken foot during practice leading up to Saturday's game against Rutgers and will miss extended time after reportedly undergoing surgery Friday morning.
Knox was in competition for the open guard spot in the off season opposite Billy Price, but was ultimately beat out by true freshman Michael Jordan. Knox however has been listed as Price's backup at right guard since the beginning of the season.
This isn't the first foot injury Knox has suffered, as he broke his foot in February 2015 which caused him to miss spring practice that season.
The loss of Knox also is another hit to Ohio State's depth up front as junior college transfer Malcolm Pridgeon suffered a knee injury that has kept him out since fall camp.
Offensive line coach Greg Studrawa mentioned true freshmen Tyler Gerald and Gavin Cupp before the season started as young players who could possibly crack the two-deep depth chart before seasons end.null
