The Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer stated earlier this week that the No. 3 college football team expects to get two defensive starters back for Saturday’s rivalry matchup versus the Michigan Wolverines.
Linebacker Curtis Grant and cornerback Doran Grant should be making it to the field to face Michigan after missing time with injuries, according to Meyer.
Curtis Grant missed the past two college football games, victories versus the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Indiana Hoosiers, with lingering ankle and back problems.
“We didn’t feel like he was quite ready, and we’ve got to get him back,” Meyer told the newspaper. “I think Curtis Grant will be good to go, which we’ll need him in this game.”
Doran Grant suffered an unspecified injury in the first half of Saturday’s 42-14 victory versus the Hoosiers and did not make it back. Nevertheless, according to Meyer he held the cornerback out of the second half primarily as a precaution and that he is expected to play at Michigan.
Meyer also said No. 3 cornerback Armani Reeves is expected to be suiting up as well.
