COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Ohio State defensive end Lawrence Wilson will undergo surgery for torn ligaments in his left knee and will miss the rest of this year.
Coach Jim Tressel announced Wilson's injury during his news conference on Tuesday.
Wilson missed all of last season with a broken right leg. The 6-foot-4, 274-pound junior from Akron, was injured in the Buckeyes' 16-3 victory over Purdue on Saturday.
He was the sixth-leading tackler for the Buckeyes (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) with 18, including 2 1/2 tackles for a loss with one sack.
Ohio State has been rotating players on the defensive line. Wilson's spot will most likely be filled by junior Rob Rose.
The 12th-ranked Buckeyes play at No. 20 Michigan State (6-1, 3-0) on Saturday.
