Ohio State wide receiver Dontre Wilson left the game after sustaining an apparent injury in the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ contest at Maryland on Saturday.
The injury occurred after Wilson hauled in a five-yard reception from J.T. Barrett. Wilson later fumbled the ball on the play, before lying on the turf for a considerable amount of time being tended to by trainers.
Dontre Wilson down on the field after that play. Trainers just rolled him onto his back.

Urban Meyer was clapping as he stood near Wilson. I assume that's a good sign. Now Wilson is walking off.

Wilson got up under his own power and was escorted back to the visiting locker room by Ohio State trainers.
Wilson entered 2016 as the most experience skill position player on the Buckeyes but has played a limited role because of the ascension of versatile underclassmen like Curtis Samuel. The 5-foot-10, 195-pound senior has recorded 26 catches for 343 yards this season, including three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown on Saturday before leaving the game.
No further details on Wilson’s injury were immediately available from Ohio State.
