Ohio State WR Parris Campbell confirms head injury kept him out of Iowa game

Ohio State wide receiver/kick returner Parris Campbell will be back on the field this weekend for the Buckeyes’ Big Ten East showdown against Michigan State. He was kept out of last week’s 31-point loss at Iowa, and Campbell confirmed Wednesday it was due to a head injury.

Campbell told reporters Wednesday night that it was a “helpless feeling” watching his team lose from his Columbus apartment.

“It’s a really helpless feeling. I was here in Columbus, watched the game in my apartment,” Campbell said. “It was a helpless feeling knowing my guys were going through that and I was sitting at home not even being able to being able to participate.”

A junior, Campbell said he is back to 100 percent and could be a key factor against the Spartans on offense and special teams. He has 29 catches for 410 yards and 2 touchdowns this season, and he also has a 36.6 yards per return average on 9 kickoff returns.

He’s hoping he can do his part to help the Buckeyes get the taste of the Iowa defeat out of their mouths.

“We’re a pissed off, hungry team right now,” he said. “Coming off that loss, it was a shocking feeling for everybody. Our mentality right now is to win out. We have to beat Michigan State now. That’s the goal.”
