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.
