Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer issued a major injury update for the Buckeyes heading into Saturday night's Big Ten Championship Game against Northwestern.

OSU will be missing its starting right guard, Demetrius Knox, against the Wildcats.

Knox suffered a leg injury late in the win over Michigan.

The Buckeyes' starting offensive lineman is dealing with a Lisfranc issue.

"It's a tough loss. We have to regroup. Wyatt Davis looks like he'll start," Meyer announced.

Ohio State enters Saturday night's game against Northwestern as a heavy favorite.

The Buckeyes, 11-1, need a win to remain in College Football Playoff contention.
