Sermon was shown walking off the field at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. while holding his left collarbone area. ESPN reported that Sermon could not move his arm.
Sermon’s absence is a loss for Ohio State. The Oklahoma transfer was coming on in a big way recently. He had 10 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown against Michigan State, 29 carries for 331 yards and two touchdowns against Northwestern, and 31 carries for 193 yards and a touchdown against Clemson.
Master Teague handled rushing duties with Sermon out.
