COLUMBUS -- Ohio State will be without starting linebacker Etienne Sabino for about four weeks after the senior captain underwent surgery Sunday to repair a broken fibula, the school announced today.
Sabino suffered the injury in Ohio State’s 63-38 win over Nebraska on Saturday. He was replaced by freshman Joshua Perry.
"Sabino's like a son and a brother to everybody,” Meyer said. “He's an incredible human being. I love that guy. He's hurting. He talked to the team after the game, and it was an emotional moment. This team's getting pretty close because of guys like him. We're going to miss him."
