Just a day after being announced a captain for his senior season, defensive end Jonathon Cooper has possibly went down with a lower-leg injury, according to reports from Tim May of Letterman Row.

Cooper comes into his fourth season with the Buckeyes with 47 tackles, 10 1/2 of which were for loss and 5 1/2 sacks.

In 2018, Cooper played in 12 games and finished with 25 tackles, 6 1/2 for loss and 2 1/2 sacks.

On Monday, every captain for the 2019 team was available for interviews except for Cooper.

There is no timetable on his return, and Ohio State has not confirmed the injury.
