Berger Says He Faces Another ACL Injury

Ohio State linebacker Kyle Berger tweeted Monday evening that he has suffered a second torn ACL. A knee injury kept him out of his senior year of high school as well.

Ohio State true freshman linebacker Kyle Berger posted on Twitter on Monday evening that he faces a second torn ACL.

An OSU spokesman said he had not been briefed on any injury facing the linebacker.

Berger previously missed his senior year of play at Cleveland St. Ignatius when he suffered a torn ACL in a preseason scrimmage last fall against Canton McKinley. He told Scout's Bill Greene in February that his recovery was going great, and he was on the field as the Buckeyes began practice this fall.

Berger (6-1, 229) still was a four-star prospect and rated the No. 3 outside linebacker and No. 67 overall prospect in the 2014 class, thanks in part to a junior season in which he made 105 tackles, 44 TFL and 10 sacks. He was expected to vie for special teams playing time this fall. Recommended Stories
