John Simon injury: Ohio State defensive end out vs. Michigan

Patrick Smith

Buckeyes' defensive end John Simon is out for Ohio State's rivalry game against Michigan.

It turns out Buckeyes senior defensive end and co-captain John Simon won't get to follow-up immediately on his four-sack performance in a 21-14 (OT) win over Wisconsin last week.

Simon has a synovial bursa sac injury, something that's been hidden for much of the Buckeyes' huge rivalry week, leading into its game against Michigan.

It was reported earlier Simon was a game-time decision Saturday, and he did not warm up with the Buckeyes as they prepared to take on their arch rivals:

Simon has 17 career sacks and 42 tackles for loss, and was a third-team All American selection in 2011.

OddsShark.com shows Ohio State as four-point favorites heading into the game, looking to run its undefeated streak this year to 12 games. The Wolverines broke a seven-year losing streak last season, defeating the Buckeyes 40-34.
