Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has issued a major injury update for Saturday's game against the Michigan Wolverines.

Buckeyes' offensive tackle Thayer Munford has been listed as "probable" for Saturday's game against Jim Harbaugh and Co.

Munford, Ohio State's starting left tackle, left Saturday's game against Maryland with an apparent injury.

The Buckeyes are expected to have Munford back on the field against the Wolverines this Saturday, though.

A healthy offensive line is a major key for Ohio State against Michigan, which boasts one of the nation's best pass rushes.

Ohio State's ability to protect Dwayne Haskins and provide running room for its tailbacks could be the deciding factor in Saturday's rivalry game.

The Buckeyes and the Wolverines are set to kick off at noon on Saturday. The game will be on FOX.
