Ohio State coach Urban Meyer announced Monday that wide receiver K.J. Hill will be out three to four weeks after undergoing surgery on a sprained ankle.
Hill, a redshirt freshman, scored Ohio State’s first touchdown this season on a 47-yard touchdown catch from J.T. Barrett. Hill has played in all three games this season but had not caught a pass since grabbing two passes for 58 yards and a TD in that season-opening win over Bowling Green.
Going by the timetable Meyer mentioned, Hill could be back against Wisconsin (the third week in the injury timeline) or Penn State (the fourth).
Meyer also said freshman linebacker Justin Hilliard tore his left biceps and will be out for months – likely the season. Hilliard had four total tackles. Hilliard previously posted on his Instagram that he will be rehabbing for six months.
