Sounds like bruised ribs..
Quarterback Shea Patterson, Winovich's roommate, delivered some more promising news Tuesday after practice about his availability for Saturday's game at No. 10 Ohio State.
"(You'd) have to kill him to take him out," Patterson said. We're not really sure his progress yet. He's a tough guy."
"I've talked to him, he says he's feeling better. I'd assume he'd play, but you never know the severity of it. Knowing him, I think he'll play."
Junior defensive end Rashan Gary said he hopes Winovich will be healthy enough to face the Buckeyes, although he declined to say if he practiced Tuesday.
"I was just talking with Chase earlier, he is pumped up, he is ready, getting ready," Gary said. "I really couldn't tell you, but hopefully he does play. But most importantly, he has to take care of his body."
