The Ohio State quarterback took to Twitter to address the rumor.
J.T. Barrett did not break his wrist.
Rumors of a potential injury to Ohio State’s star quarterback surfaced on social media and message boards late Friday night. Some thought the rumored injury was the reason why Barrett wasn’t one of OSU’s players going to Chicago for Big Ten media days next week.
Barrett heard them and took to Twitter to put them to rest.
“My wrist is not broken just so y’all know,” he wrote.
