Jonathon Cooper, Chase Young out for Buckeyes
As Chase Young works through NCAA troubles, the Buckeyes will also be without another key defensive end, as Jonathon Cooper was listed as unavailable for the home matchup with Maryland. Cooper has been sidelined for most of his senior season.
The Buckeyes will be thin without both of their preseason starters along the defensive line for the Big Ten showdown against the Terrapins, though they are expected to get Tyler Friday back to help bolster the unit.
Ohio State will also await the status of another starter, as wide receiver Austin Mack, who didn’t go through warmups prior to the Wisconsin game and ultimately didn’t play, will be a game-time decision.
Here’s the full availability report as announced on Friday by the program, making note that Ohio State doesn’t differentiate between injuries or disciplinary matters:
