Minor (according to espn) and Shaw (Freep) both had groin injuries.

No other information was given.

 Also interesting news - Jim Tressel drinks Diet Coke - there was a can sitting right next to him during his presser.

The AA News and Free Press are still reporting that Dorrestein will start at left tackle, yet Nowicki played the rest of the Miami game and Dorrestein hasn't played yet this year. Could it be that they are just reading the depth chart/are extremely lazy/don't even watch the games? Did RR give any insight as to who the starter will be at the Monday press conference?

edit: Brian says the two are competing for the spot

Here's what Rodriguez had to say about it:

What is the status of offensive lineman Mark Ortmann?

"It doesn't look like he's going to be able to play. He dislocated his elbow and has it in a sling. He's more than likely out for this week. With an open date, hopefully he'll be back for [Wisconsin]. With three guys up front, it is probably the position we could afford to lose a guy the most, just simply because of experience and depth. But that's where we're at. We're going to move guys around. We'll move Perry Dorrestein, who has some experience, and he has practiced pretty well. He'll be over there on the left side as will Bryant Nowicki, who came in last week, and true freshman Patrick Omameh."

Maybe they took "We'll move Perry Dorrestein" to mean "Perry Dorrestein will start"
