Etienne Sabino Ready To Play Saturday
Etienne Sabino will once more be playing for the Ohio State Buckeyes when they meet up with the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday. Coach Urban Meyer says the linebacker will be returning Saturday to play the Badgers after breaking his fibula in Ohio State's big win on October 6 over Nebraska.
Meyer stated on Monday that Etienne Sabino would be in the starting lineup when Ohio plays Wisconsin. Defensive lineman Jonathan Hankins is happy to have Sabino returning. "I think he's going to be back at 100% and ready to play." he told reporters.
Sabino who weighs in at 237 pounds and is 6'3", made 37 tackles and a couple of sacks in six games. Zach Boren said that Sabino is looking good and that the play on the field has been elevated since his return. Ryan Shazier and Josh Perry will be the outside starters while Storm Klein and Zach Boren will co-start as middle linebackers.
