Ohio State's star defensive back wasn't out there with his teammates.

Ohio State might be without one of its best players against USC tonight.

Buckeyes star defensive back Denzel Ward, a probable first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, was not seen out on the field for warmups.

It's looking like Ward might not play tonight.

Ward, an All-American defensive back, could be sitting out of tonight's game with the NFL in mind.

Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. E.T. We'll know more then.
