COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State says defensive end Chase Young won't play Saturday against Maryland because of a possible NCAA "issue" in 2018.

The surprising news was announced by the school with team's status report and depth chart for the coming game. The statement says Young is being held out because of a "possible NCAA issue from last year" the athletic department is "looking into."

Young leads the nation in sacks with 13.5 after a dominant performance two weeks ago against Wisconsin that thrust him into the Heisman Trophy race. The junior is projected to be one of the first players taken in next year's NFL draft.

The third-ranked Buckeyes were off last week and face Rutgers next week before finishing the season against No. 5 Penn State and No. 14 Michigan.
