As of now, the Buckeyes will be without 10 players this Saturday against the Ducks. The biggest name listed as unavailable is junior offensive lineman Harry Miller.
Miller missed last week’s game between Ohio State and Minnesota. Redshirt freshman Luke Wypler did a fine job filling in for him in the season opener.
In addition to not having Miller for Week 2, the Buckeyes will also be without Kamryn Babb, Tyler Friday, Jakob James, Jaylen Johnson, Trey Leroux, Mitchell Melton, Noah Potter, Ryan Smith and Toby Wilson.
Defensive tackle Jerron Cage, defensive back Jantzen Dunn and safety Josh Proctor are being listed as game-time decisions. Proctor started for Ohio State in Week 1, but he left the game early due to a shoulder injury.

Despite this long list of inactives, the Buckeyes have most of their star players ready to go for this Saturday.
After having an inconsistent performance in its season opener last week, Ohio State will try to show the college football world what it’s truly capable of this afternoon.
Kickoff for the Ohio State-Oregon game is at 12 p.m. ET on FOX.
