Our wonderboy, Nick Bosa, is out indefinitely after an surgery following an injury he sustained in Ohio State’s game against TCU. Eleven Warriors has more details:
Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa underwent surgery on Thursday morning for a core muscle injury he suffered in last Saturday’s 40-28 win over TCU, Urban Meyer said Thursday on his radio show on 97.1 The Fan.
Meyer did not provide a projected timetable for his recovery, though Bosa had already been ruled out for this week’s game against Tulane.
Bosa is perhaps the best defensive lineman in the country and was gathering serious consideration for the Heisman Trophy, which hasn’t been given to a defensive player since 1997 when Charles Woodson won the prestigious award. Although Bosa might be the most important piece of Ohio State’s defense, the team remains stacked all around with players like Dre’Mont Jones, Chase Young, Jonathon Cooper and others populating the defensive line.
Bosa’s core muscle surgery (which is oftentimes referred to as a sports hernia) usually takes four to six weeks for recovery, according to Eleven Warriors.
Core muscle injuries, which are often called sports hernias, often require a recovery of at least four to six weeks after surgery, which could keep Bosa out until November.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
