Dante Booker was listed as “probable” earlier this week, but it doesn’t look like he’s ready to return yet.
The Ohio State linebacker was not dressed for warmups before the Buckeyes game against Indiana.

Coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday that Booker was practicing and would likely play against Indiana. The senior linebacker sprained his MCL in a 77-10 opening-week win over Bowling Green.
Booker has made 31 tackles in three years as a reserve linebacker and special teams player. Sophomore Jerome Baker, named Big Ten co-Defensive Player of the Week after the Buckeyes beat Oklahoma, filled in.
