A knee injury suffered during practice this week could keep Ohio State freshman running back Bri'onte Dunn out of next weekend's game against Wisconsin.
Ohio St. Buckeyes running back Bri'onte Dunn is questionable for the team's upcoming game against the Wisconsin Badgers after suffering a knee injury during practice this week, according to Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch. The freshman has primarily been used in mop up duty this year.
After getting playing time in Ohio State's first two games of the season, Dunn stuck on the sidelines for the next seven games before returning to play against the Illinois Fighting Illini last week. He set career-highs across the board against Illinois, carrying the ball 13 times for 73 yards and a touchdown.
While the Buckeyes have a solid starting running back in junior Carlos Hyde, Dunn could be a big part of the future for Urban Meyer's squad. It's unclear how serious the current situation regarding Dunn's knee is, but it can't be that bad if the team is considering letting him play.
