COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Starting right tackle Jim Cordle, the most experienced offensive lineman for No. 11 Ohio State, will miss the next three to four weeks with an ankle injury.
Coach Jim Tressel disclosed the injury on Thursday. He said Cordle, a fifth-year senior who has started the last three seasons, had complained of pain in his ankle and it got steadily worse. Tests on Wednesday showed the severity of the injury. Tressel was unsure if Cordle was injured in the Buckeyes' 18-15 loss to No. 3 Southern California on Saturday night.
In his place in Saturday's game against Toledo, the Buckeyes would most likely play J.B. Shugarts or Mike Adams, or could move others around on the front wall.
