Booker hasn’t played since the season-opening 77-10 win against Bowling Green. Last week, Meyer said Booker’s injury was worse than originally thought. Meyer said it was a sprained MCL and PCL but that Booker was “close.”

Looks like the Buckeyes will finally get him back Saturday night.
Last season, Booker made 22 tackles.
