Ohio State announced that three players won't be available against Rutgers.

Ohio State takes on Rutgers on the road Saturday night, and it looks like the Buckeyes will be a bit shorthanded heading into the contest.

Saturday afternoon, Ohio State announced that three players - defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones, running back Antonio Williams and safety Erick Smith would not be available. Jones apparently "scraped his leg" in the locker room this week and required stitches.

Williams did not make the trip due to a medical issue. Smith didn't make the trip either - with no reason specified.

Ohio State and Rutgers will kick off at 7:30 PM ET.
