The Ohio State Buckeyes redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is expected to miss the Big Ten Conference Championship game next week and a bowl game. Barrett left in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury against the Michigan Wolverines in their rivalry game.

He was carted off the field with an air cast on his leg with Ohio State leading 28-21 at the time. Now, it appears that he suffered a dislocated ankle and possible a broken bone.

Barrett will have to go through further tests to determine if the bone is actually broken. He is currently at a local hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

Head coach Urban Meyer should have a preliminary update on his condition at the end of the game when he speaks with the media.

When Barrett left, he was replaced by sophomore Cardale Jones, who is the next man up. Braxton Miller has been out for the season, and is expected to transfer, which is why Jones is the back-up.

This season, he went 203-of-314 for 2,834 yards with 34 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He had a 169.8 rating.

With his injury and Jones receiving playing time — and if Jones plays well — Meyer would have to decide on who would be the starter next season.

Barrett was coming off of one of his better performances of the season leading into the Wolverines contest before he was injured. In his last contest, he went 25 of 35 for 302 yards with four touchdown passes and two interceptions in a win over the Indiana Hoosiers.

He had just four 300-yard passing games on the season. He had a season-high 330 passing yards against the Cincinnati Bearcats on September 27th.
