Video is out from the bizarre J.T. Barrett-photographer collision incident, and it may raise more questions than it answers.
Barrett was in to start Saturday’s Ohio State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor, a 31-20 win for the Buckeyes, but left early after an alleged collision with a photographer on the sideline aggravated an existing knee injury.
Head coach Urban Meyer was furious about the incident after the game, and called for an “all-out investigation” into what happened. For his part, Barrett said the photographer tried to squeeze by and bumped him, but did not feel it was anything malicious.
Now, we have a new video of Barrett, but of course, it only shows the quarterback before and after the bump. It does show the star quarterback with a severe limp, though.
More, from TMZ:
The witness says he didn’t record the collision — but managed to capture the direct aftermath … and you can see Barrett limping.
The witness also says the perpetrator had already run away from the collision site by the time he got his phone back up and running … but ID’d the photog as a white guy in gray and yellow gear who was carrying a “medium-sized camera.”
Barrett wasn’t the only Buckeye star to catch the wrong side of a sideline camera on Saturday. Mike Weber also collided with one after being shoved out of bounds during the game.
Barrett should be good to go this Saturday against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.
