Injured Bosa leaves Ohio State to prep for pro career

Nick Bosa

The injury, which required surgery, potentially would keep him out for the season.

And, as John Bosa explained, though the prescribed recovery time of 12 weeks indicates Nick could return this season, that doesn't take into effect the tole of preparing for and then playing defensive line in the style Bosa plays. Instead, he intends to turn his focus to what was already his inevitable next step: the 2019 NFL Draft.

Nick Bosa had surgery on September 20 in Philadelphia, and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said at the time that the Buckeyes hoped Bosa could return this season.

"I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program", Meyer said.

He has been replaced in the lineup by Chase Young, a sophomore who was one of the top 10 recruits in the country in the class of 2018.

Five Palestinians killed by Israelis in border protest
The Bedouin village is said to be slated for demolition and Palestinian villagers have been protesting against the imminent move. Israel accuses Hamas of orchestrating the weekly border riots that have taken place since March to provide cover for attacks.

The Bosa family apparently didn't even need that long to decide on Nick's future. He met with Urban Meyer and some other members of the Buckeyes staff over the weekend to inform them of his intentions.

The decision does not come as a huge shock.

Both Bosa brothers earned Big Ten defensive lineman-of-the-year honors. Based on recent rookie contracts and financial projections, that would put Bosa in the neighborhood of $30 million in his first league deal.

Bosa racked up four sacks, recovered a fumble for a touchdown and forced a fumble returned for a touchdown by a teammate in three games to start the season.

Ohio State's defense hasn't been the same since Bosa's departure.
