Down Linemen

I never enjoy telling you about any current, future or former Buckeye players being injured but its a part of life. There is one silver lining to anything that the Buckeye players current or future have in getting back on the mend and usually coming back stronger than before. Mickey Marotti and staff are definitely the best in the business, not just helping come back from injury but strength and conditioning in general. Who had their hands on their hips in the Sugar Bowl and National Championship games?

Mickey and company will be having to help out scarlet shirt freshman Demetrius Knox recover from a broken foot. Per our friends at eleven warriors sources have told them Knox will be on crutches for six weeks and can’t run for ten. Its a set back for the young man who won’t be able to participate in spring practices that start this Tuesday nor the Spring Game April 18. You know he will be chomping at the bit and be ready for fall training camp and pushing for playing time.

Another project that Marotti and staff will have looks like 2015 4 star defensive lineman signee Dre’Mont Jones. Sadly per his twitter account last night he believes he might have torn his ACL playing in the basketball game for Cleveland St. Ignatius against Avon.

Remember Buckeye Nation as fans these kids are in great hands and to Demetrius and Dre’Mont keep your heads up know there is going to be lots of hard work ahead but there is a great community of Scarlet and Gray here to support you.
