Ohio State expects to have its starting quarterback back for the Big Ten championship against Wisconsin.

Head coach Urban Meyer said redshirt senior J.T. Barrett “moved into probable” for Saturday night’s matchup, though he did not practice on Sunday. Barrett was injured with six minutes remaining in the third quarter of Ohio State’s 31-20 win against Michigan two days ago and did not return.

After the game, Meyer said a cameraman hit Barrett with a camera before kickoff, which caused him to aggravate a knee injury. Barrett then was hit during a run, which reaggravated the injury and forced him to exit the game and not return.

The Buckeyes’ game against the Badgers kicks off at 8:17 p.m. Saturday night.
