Sophomore Micheal Bennett and senior Nathan Williams have both been ruled out of Ohio State's game this afternoon against UCF. The Buckeyes will instead be turning J.T. Moore and Noah Spence to fill in on the defensive line.
Among the Ohio State Buckeyes not in pads during warmups: Michael Bennett, Nathan Williams, Jordan Hall, Adam Homan— Doug Lesmerises (@PDBuckeyes) September 8, 2012
Bennett appears to have re-aggrevated a previously existing groin injury, and there is no word yet on how long he'll be out of action. Williams missed all of the 2011 season while recovering from knee surgery, but he did take part in the Buckeyes opener. The Buckeyes have good depth along the defensive line, but losing two of their starting defensive linemen could stretch the defense a bit thin.
