Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback CJ Stroud appeared to have a slight limp as he exited the field in the fourth quarter against Maryland after failing to convert a 4th and 1, favoring his left leg. He has re-entered the game and is playing through for the six minutes on the game clock.

Stroud is preparing to face the undefeated Michigan Wolverines next week in the Buckeyes’ biggest game of the season. If he is not at 100 percent come Saturday, that could spell disaster for this Ohio State team.

The Maryland Terrapins are keeping it close in Week 12 with the Buckeyes, down just three points with five minutes left in the third quarter. Stroud is 17-for-29 on passing for 233 yards thus far, adding one touchdown in the air.
