Game notes: Indiana | Ohio State | Big ten weekly notes

Injury notes: Indiana’s quarterback depth took a beating this week as the redshirt senior backup quarterback Jack Tuttle was ruled out for the season with a shoulder injury sustained against Penn State, elevating to true freshman Brendan Sorsby and redshirt sophomore Dexter Williams towards the top of the depth graph. Fortunately, Indiana redshirt junior QB Connor Bazelak he is expected to return to the starting lineup against Ohio State after missing last week’s game with an undisclosed injury.

Indiana’s starting offensive line might look a little different when the redshirt freshman starts right tackle Joshua Sales Jr. is questionable in view of Saturday’s match. IU’s star linebacker and team captain Cam Jones he’s likely to miss a fifth straight game with a foot injury, but Tom Allen said he’s progressing with his rehabilitation and getting closer to possibly returning.
