Barrett, who was hurt as he was tackled by a trio of Wolverines, had an air cast put on his right leg and was taken off the field on a cart. Watch the injury at the bottom of this post.

Before Barrett left the field, several of his teammates and coaches came up to console him, as did Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner in a very classy move.

The fans at Ohio Stadium gave their star redshirt freshman a rousing ovation as he left the field.

Cardale Jones replaced Barrett and helped lead the Buckeyes to the victory, Ohio State’s 24th straight Big Ten regular-season win.

Here’s some of the Twitter reaction to Barrett’s unfortunate injury.
