Ohio State linebacker Etienne Sabino returned to practice on Wednesday as he recovers from a broken fibula.

Ohio State linebacker Etienne Sabino returned to practice on Wednesday. The senior broke his fibula in the first half of Ohio State's win over Nebraska on Oct. 6. He underwent surgery and has yet to play since suffering the injury.

With the Buckeyes off this week it is possible that Sabino will be available for their next game, Nov. 17 against the Wisconsin Badgers. Before breaking his leg, Sabino had 38 tackles, two sacks, and one interception on the season.

Sabino was excited to return to the practice field on Wednesday. Linebacker Ryan Shazier said, "he's just happy, you can tell. He's into it." Without Sabino on the field the Buckeyes linebacking corps has been thin and they look forward to the talent and experience Sabino brings to the field.

Ohio State (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) have two games remaining this season against Wisconsin and Michigan. They will not be eligible to play in the Big Ten Championship or a bowl game due to a one-year postseason ban.
