Well then!

UPDATE: Well, Justin Fields returned eight plays later and promptly connected with Garrett Wilson for a 30-yard touchdown!

Ohio State leads Michigan 35-16 and they might need to hold on without their starting quarterback. Justin Fields suffered a knee injury midway through the third quarter. Chris Chugunov has replaced him in the lineup. Prior to the injury, Fields completed 11 of 19 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns.

Fields had an offensive lineman pushed back into him forcing him to go awkwardly to the ground. Fields grabbed his knee, but thankfully was able to walk off the field under his own power. He was examined in the medical tent, but has since returned after six plays with a brace on his knee. He quickly responded with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson
