Urban Meyer said that running back Mike Weber is cleared and will play Saturday. Weber has already missed two games this season with a hamstring injury, an injury he reaggravated in the loss to Oklahoma. Without Weber, OSU’s run game has remained dangerous with J.K. Dobbins. Dobbins is averaging 7.5 yards per carry, and has already accounted for 520 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Weber’s addition will be valuable against a solid Rutgers rushing defense that has allowed only a single rushing touchdown so far this season.
