Starting Guard Justin Boren Out With a Knee Injury

Tim May and Ken Gordon, of the Columbus Dispatch, are reporting that starting left guard Justin Boren injured a knee in practice yesterday and is expected to be sidelined several weeks.

No other details are available, except that this is not considered serious: i.e., an ACL tear or something that would keep Boren out for an extended time.

Remember, injuries "affect" a player differently depending on the time of year, if you know what I mean.

If this had happened in the opener against Navy, maybe Boren would play the next week against USC. But it's preseason camp, so there's little reason to have him get back in there and bang it right now.

It's still enough to send shivers down the spine of OSU fans. Boren has quickly become the face of the "new and improved?" offensive line.
