CB Dontae Johnson elevated from practice squad; WR Jalen Hurd placed on IR

Eleven Warriors 11 September, 2021 - 03:37pm

Since Travis Benjamin wasn’t elevated, that means Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu will serve as punt returners

Johnson could start, though the signing of Josh Norman would make far more sense. So I’d say it comes down to either Norman or Demmodore Lenoir, while Johnson plays special teams.

The corresponding move was placing wide receiver Jalen Hurd on the injured reserve. As a result, Hurd will miss at least three games. I’ll be curious to see how long Hurd misses and if he gives the offense anything this season.

It’s early in the season, so counting Hurd out in September doesn’t feel right, but based on everything we’ve seen from the kid, he hasn’t given us much of a reason at all to believe anything will change.

Travis Benjamin not getting called up was a mild surprise. However, that means the team is comfortable with the duo of Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu returning punts. How the two are used remains to be seen, but it’s probably wise not to waste a roster spot on Benjamin if all he’s doing is fair-catching punts.

The second full Saturday of the college football season kicks off with third-ranked Ohio State hosting No. 11 Oregon, a game with major playoff implications despite the early date.

The Buckeyes are fresh off an appearance in the national championship game, and look to pick up a key non-conference win along the way to defending their Big Ten title. It’s an even bigger opportunity for the Ducks. An Oregon victory, on top of UCLA’s upending of LSU last week, would go a long way toward helping the Pac-12 end its four-year playoff drought.

Here’s all you need to know to enjoy the game:  

Kickoff is set for noon ET Saturday at Ohio Stadium (a.k.a. the Horseshoe) in Columbus.

The game will be televised nationally on Fox, and gets the network’s full “Big Noon Kickoff” treatment.

The game can be streamed on the Fox Sports app.

The Buckeyes are 14.5-point favorites with the over/under at 63.5 points, according to Tipico Sportsbook.
