Bumps and bruises: Monday injury notes

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Updated injury information for Ohio State after coach Urban Meyer's Monday news conference:
- Jordan Hall: The projected starting running back has made it through the initial 10-week recovery period prescribed after the surgery to repair a torn tendon in his foot, but that doesn't necessarily mean Hall will be available against California this week. Meyer indicated that Hall worked out on Sunday, "so there's a chance" he could return this Saturday.
- Carlos Hyde: The injury could have been worse for the next guy in line in the backfield, but the sprained MCL suffered in the second quarter is still expected to keep him out for at least one game and potentially more.
- Nathan Williams: The defensive end's status will be monitored again throughout the week, and Meyer suggested that could be the case throughout the entire season as Williams works his way back from microfracture knee surgery. He did not dress against UCF.
- Michael Bennett: The Buckeyes will likely be without another end expected to be a significant contributor with Bennett's groin injury apparently more serious than originally thought. He hasn't played in either game yet, and it could possibly be a couple of weeks until he's ready.
