Ohio State Issues Scary Justin Fields Health Update

Ohio State issued a scary Justin Fields health update on Tuesday.

Fields, 20, has been dealing with a knee issue over his last two games.

The injury originally occurred in Ohio State’s victory over Penn State on November 23 when he sprained his MCL.

From there, Fields reportedly aggravated the injury further during his team’s final regular season game against Michigan.

The Buckeyes went on to win the Big Ten Conference Championship in a game versus Wisconsin, but Fields quite clearly did not look 100 percent in that one.

The hope was that with a break after the conference title game, Fields would return to form before the College Football Playoff kicked off.

Unfortunately, that does not look like it will be the case.

While doing a media appearance at the Fiesta Bowl on Tuesday, Fields admitted that his injury has not healed in the way he hoped it would.

As a result, Fields will wear a small brace during Saturday’s looming showdown with Clemson.

If Fields is unable to move the way we have grown accustomed to seeing him move, it could be a problem against the Tigers’ defense.

Thus far this season Fields has rushed for 473 yards and 10 scores. A knee injury could spell trouble for Ohio State’s offensive versatility.

Fields’ health should continue to be monitored heading into Saturday’s game.
