Ohio State football issues availability report for Rutgers game, key players out or questionable

The fine folks with the Ohio State Football team have issued the availability report for the game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, and the Buckeyes have an issue at defensive back.

As always with these injury reports we get some good news and some bad and this week the good news is the return of Emeka Egbuka. Egbuka is extremely underrated in the national media as no one seems to be discussing the effectiveness of who is arguably the most consistent receiver at Ohio State.
