Carlos Hyde of the Ohio State Buckeyes will miss Saturday's game against the California Golden Bears with a sprained medial cruciate ligament.

Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde will not play against the California Golden Bears on Saturday, according to SB Nation's Land-Grant Holy Land on Twitter. Hyde has an MCL sprain, though according to the Tweet, the prognosis is fairly positive as far as MCL sprains go, so it's looking likely that Hyde won't miss as much time as is usually attributed with an MCL injury.

Hyde injured his right knee in the second quarter of the Buckeyes' game against UCF. He had his knee wrapped with ice before being carted off from the sideline. His day was over after he had seven carries for 27 yards.

Jordan Hall is the listed starter ahead of Hyde, but he had a foot injury over the offseason that required surgery and his status going forward is still up in the air. Outside of him, there's true freshman Bri'onte Dunn, who will likely get some carries. Ohio State's ground game is still in good shape though, given the dual threat nature of quarterback Braxton Miller, especially in Ohio State's offense.
