Meyer said that Burrow is “pretty close” to returning, as he is now throwing in practices after a hand injury he suffered in fall camp. At the time of his injury – Aug. 21 – sources said he was given a four-to-six week timetable to return.
Four weeks from Aug. 21 would put Burrow in line to return on Sept. 18, five days prior to facing the Buckeyes’ final non-conference opponent, UNLV.
In 2016, Burrow didn’t get many opportunities with the Buckeyes, but when he did, he performed more than well. The freshman completed 22-of-28 passes while throwing two touchdown passes. He also displayed his running abilities, as he ran one in against Nebraska as well.
The former 4-star recruit from the Class of 2015 was competing with freshman Dwayne Haskins for the team’s backup quarterback position.
