The Ohio State football program will be shorthanded this weekend as the Buckeyes attempt to advance to 3-0 on the season.

Ahead of the meeting with Rutgers, it was announced that a whopping 13 players will be unavailable to take on the Scarlet Knights. The secondary will be without cornerback Cameron Brown who suffered a torn Achilles in Week 2, with defensive backs Lejond Cavazos, Lloyd McFarquhar, and safety Kourt Williams also sitting out.

The full list of players who will be sidelined includes:

The good news, however, is that Ohio State will be close to full strength on offense, so the Buckeyes will be looking to run up the score to make up for any setbacks on defense.

Kickoff between the No. 3 Buckeyes and Scarlet Knights at Ohio Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
