In the middle of a press conference focused on his suspension and domestic violence allegations made against former wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Zach Smith, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said Monday that junior defensive end Nick Bosa will not play in Saturday’s game against Tulane.
Meyer said that the defensive end had suffered an abdominal and groin issue in the Buckeyes’ 40-28 win over No. 15 TCU on Saturday, leaving the game in the third quarter and not returning for the remainder of the game.
In the win over the Horned Frogs, Bosa recorded five tackles, including a strip sack recovered by redshirt junior Davon Hamilton in the end zone for the first Ohio State score of the game.
Meyer said Bosa will undergo further tests this week.
No. 4 Ohio State will face Tulane at Ohio Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
