Urban Meyer issued a new injury update for star defensive lineman Nick Bosa at his weekly press conference this afternoon. Ohio State's best defensive player remains out with an injury.

Bosa, who underwent a procedure following the Buckeyes' win over TCU, will be out for a couple of more weeks at least, Meyer announced.

This is a blow to Ohio State, which is getting ready for, arguably, its biggest game of the season. The Buckeyes are set to travel to State College, Pa. to take on No. 9 Penn State.

Meyer announced this afternoon that Bosa will not be ready for that game.

"Nick Bosa is still not ready. It's going to be a few more weeks," Meyer announced at his weekly Monday press conference.

Bosa, the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, had played at a ridiculously elite level through Ohio State's first two-plus games. His play was actually getting him some Heisman Trophy hype.

Ohio State and Penn State are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T. on Saturday. The game will be televised on ABC.
