COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State has announced that two players will no longer play for the Buckeyes, one because of injury and another who wishes to play closer to his home in Colorado.

Sophomore linebacker Conner Crowell, from Waldorf, Md., has decided to give up football. He has had two microfracture surgeries while at Ohio State for an injury that occurred while he was in high school. Ohio State medical staff had not cleared him to play.

Freshman offensive lineman Joey O’Connor, from Windsor, Colo., requested a transfer to play closer to home. He was redshirted last fall as the Buckeyes went 12-0 under first-year coach Urban Meyer.
