As No. 2 Ohio State prepares to open the season against No. 5 Notre Dame, the Buckeyes may be without one of their starting wide receivers when they kick off.
Third-year wide receiver Julian Fleming is listed as a game-time decision for Ohio State’s season-opener against Notre Dame. Head coach Ryan Day said on Aug. 24 that Fleming dislocated his shoulder during a team scrimmage and added that the Catawissa, Penn., native popped it back in place and proceeded to score two touchdowns.
Graduate cornerback Lloyd McFarquhar, third-year linebacker Mitchell Melton and second-year running back Evan Pryor are all listed as unavailable. Pryor and Melton are nursing season-ending knee injuries.
On the Notre Dame side of things, Fighting Irish head coach Marcus Freeman said on Saturday morning that starting left guard Jarrett Patterson is still a game-time decision.
