Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields briefly left Saturday’s game against Michigan due to a left leg injury, but the Buckeyes seem to have avoided a major scare.

Just after Fields released the ball on a third-quarter completion, Ohio State tight end Luke Farrell fell into Fields’ leg as he tried to hold off a bull rush from Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson.

Fields was down for about a minute before limping off the field under his own power. He immediately entered the medical tent for further evaluation and backup Chris Chugunov entered the game for the Buckeyes. 

Chugunov moved the offense into Michigan territory, paving the way for Fields’ return to the field. On his first play after being evaluated, Fields — sporting a knee brace — made an unbelievable throw to Garrett Wilson for a 30-yard touchdown.

The Fields-to-Wilson connection increased Ohio State’s lead to 42-16 with 3:46 left in the third quarter.
