Jordan Parker out for rest of 2017 Season; Quick hits from Lincoln Riley’s Ohio State Press Conference

Lincoln Riley met with the media for his normal game week press conference prior to traveling to Columbus, Ohio this week:

  • Riley announced that sophomore cornerback Jordan Parker will be out for the season with a leg injury. The injury came on a special teams play. Freshmen Tre Norwood and Tre Brown will backup Jordan Thomas and Parnell Motley.
  • Decisions on A.D. Miller and Du’Vonta Lampkin have yet to be determined for this week. Both did not play last week.
  • With question marks stemming from last year’s secondary performance, Riley mentioned that he thinks that they “cover better than they did at this point last year”.
  • Riley mentioned Ohio State’s depth along the defensive line multiple times. He also mentioned running backs Mike Weber, J.K. Dobbins, and offensive linemen Billy Price as players who stick out on their offense.
  • As expected, Lincoln Riley thinks this will be a “fun” matchup and a great college football environment in Columbus.
