College Football Injuries: Ohio State, Cincinnati relatively healthy

Kirk Irwin

Ohio State escapes their game against Illinois without any serious injuries, Cincinnati will head to Temple relatively healthy.

It's an unusually late bye week for the Ohio State Buckeyes but it still comes at a good time as the Buckeyes stare down the Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan Wolverines in the final two weeks of the season.

The Buckeyes go into the bye week carrying a boat load of confidence with a 52-22 win over the Illinois Fighting Illini. They'll also get an extra week to nurse nickel back Orhian Johnson back to health after he left the game late in the first half with a shoulder injury and didn't return. Right tackle Reid Fragel limped off the field late in the game but offensive line coach Ed Warinner told reporters after the game Fragel should be fine.

The Bearcats will hit the road to face the Temple Owls next week in relatively good shape. Cincinnati did find out last week stand out defensive end Walter Stewart's career has ended because of a spinal defect. Stewart finishes his career with 17.5 sacks which ranks eighth in Cincinnati history.
