Nick Bosa Out Indefinitely after Surgery

This changes things. I wonder what the return has been for other players with a similar injury. Does he come back before the Game?

I do think it will have an impact against Penn State. Enough for them to lose, I don't know. But there will be a noticeable difference. On the road, at night, against probably the best QB in the conference. Whoever is backing up Nick Bosa is undoubtedly a good football player. But he is not Nick Bosa. 

I mentioned this in a post a little further down, but if Bosa being out means that McSorely has even a half second more to survey the field and make throws, that could be the difference between a win and a loss.

Yea, but there's a difference between a regular 5 star and a Bosa. He was closer to Gary level as a recruit than he was to generic 4 star, and he's a fucking stud. It's a massive loss, and regardless of how many games he misses, he'll be hampered in The Game. 

The fact that they're going with the "indefinite" route makes me believe it'll be a minimum of 6-8 weeks, and even if it's 6, the odds of him being able to recover and regain stamina in order to play at his capabilities by November 24th is slim. I'm assuming Ohio State knows this and they're hoping he's back for a potential playoff appearance.

Of course he will be back for The Game.

I bet PSU fans are happy right now. This will certainly be a huge loss for OSU regardless if they just plug in another 5 star or not. Bosa is top 5-10 pick.

I have had two hernia operations.  The surgery is not a big deal, assuming what Bosa had was similar, but I was told to not lift more than 10 pounds for six weeks,after each surgery and I'm a gym rat.

Bosa is gone after this year and stands to have a huge pay day.  I don't care if he is back or not but he is a talent and if it were me, I'd be conservative with my recovery.

Hopefully he sits out the entire year. He should really consider his draft stock when deciding if he wants to rush back from injury. We all know Urban will do anything to win, including rushing a player back from injury.
