Analyzing Chase Young suspension
The Heisman Trophy campaign and the most dominant individual season in college football is on hiatus: Chase Young is facing an indefinite suspension. He won’t play against Maryland, and it is unknown when he will be eligible to play again this season. What are the latest developments? How does the suspension impact the Buckeyes? Who will step up in Young’s absence?
Lettermen Row has all the angles covered:
Lettermen Row will continue to have wall-to-wall coverage of any new developments.
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 didnâ€™t go through warmups prior to the Wisconsin game and ultimately didnâ€™t play, will be a game-time decision.
Hereâ€™s the full availability report as announced on Friday by the program, making note that Ohio State doesnâ€™t differentiate between injuries or disciplinary matters:
