Ohio State is in a dog fight against TCU this evening, as the Buckeyes trail the Horned Frogs by one point at the start of the second half, and OSU's defense might have just sustained a major loss.

Nick Bosa, Ohio State's best defensive player (and maybe the best player in the country), just went down with an apparent lower-body injury. Bosa was down on the field holding his groin area.

The younger brother of former Ohio State football star Joey Bosa has been a force tonight, recording a strip sack that led to a Buckeyes' touchdown, but it looks like he's going to miss some time.

Bosa was able to walk off the field under his own power, however he is heading to the Buckeyes' locker room.

ABC's cameras just showed Bosa walking off the field and into the locker room. He had a frustrated look on his face and appeared to be walking with somewhat of a limp.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg tweeted the following about Bosa:

Ohio State star defensive end Nick Bosa walking slowly to the locker room. Appeared to injure his groin or possibly right knee. He created Ohio State's only touchdown so far tonight with a strip-sack of Shawn Robinson.

Stretching is a major part of Nick Bosa's routine, spending more than an hour stretching every day, but sometimes you'll just have bad luck.

For Ohio State's sake (and, really, the college football world), hopefully this is nothing serious and Bosa is able to return to the game.

Stay tuned for more injury updates on Nick Bosa. Ohio State has yet to release an official statement on his status.

The Buckeyes, meanwhile, are trailing TCU, 14-13, a couple of minutes into the third quarter. The game is on ABC.
