Ohio State's new quarterback, Dwayne Haskins, has deservedly been getting a lot of credit for how great the Buckeyes' offense has looked through three-plus games.

OSU's star running back tandem of J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber, though, could be just as important for Urban Meyer's team moving forward.

Half of that tandem appears to be down with an injury, though.

Weber, the senior who surprised many when he opted to return to school, came up a little gimpy on his most-recent run in the first half against Tulane.

The senior running never went to the ground, but he was limping as he made his way off of the field. He made his way off the field without any help from trainers or teammates.

Weber had a brilliant first game for Ohio State, totaling 186 yards and 3 touchdowns, but he has just 106 rushing yards in the two-plus games since.

Stay tuned for more updates on his status. The Ohio State-Tulane game is on BTN.
