Urban Meyer started Ohio State-Michigan with some good news: The Buckeyes should be healthy for the visit from the Wolverines.

He expects running back Mike Weber, who missed Ohio State's win at Maryland with a quad bruise on Saturday, to be available this week.

Left tackle Thayer Munford, who was injured during the Maryland game, is “probable” with a leg injury, and reserve linebacker Baron Browning who frequently plays in the nickel defense, has been cleared to return, too.

Josh Alabi replaced Munford and graded out as a champion against the Terrapins.

With Weber sidelined, J.K. Dobbins became Ohio State’s workhorse back and responded with 203 yards on 37 carries.
