Senior offensive lineman Zak Zinter has been one of the best offensive lineman in college football. He suffered a massive leg injury, including a broken tibia and fibula during the regular season finale against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Obviously, with an injury of that magnitude, he will not be on the field as he recovers from surgery and prepares for the 2024 NFL draft.

Karmello English, Wide Receiver

Freshman wide receiver Karmello English is another player who will not be active in time for the 2024 National Championship Game, as he’s dealing with an undisclosed injury. The injury has kept English from seeing the field since Oct. 14 against the Indiana Hoosiers.

English only appeared in that game throughout his freshman season. He has one reception for four yards (4.0 yards per catch), with that being a touchdown.
