Undergoes surgery, still expected to play

Undergoes surgery, still expected to play

Knee injury on Saturday.

That's the life of the Ohio State quarterback, who suffered an injury after he was hit by a camera before the Buckeyes' win over MI last week.

This Year's Only Supermoon Is Almost Here - Here's How To See It
Vancouverites were privy to a number of spectacular astral displays this year, including the total solar eclipse back in August. December's full moon is typically called the "cold moon" as we begin to see arctic outbreaks across the Northern Hemisphere.

One day after leaving Ohio State's victory over MI with a knee injury, Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett underwent surgery, according to Tim May of The Columbus Dispatch. Barrett didn't return and was replaced by backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who finished the game. Although he was able to play, Barrett was forced to leave in the third quarter when he twisted the knee again. Only coaches and players usually are allowed inside and it is not known exactly where the incident took place.

If Haskins does indeed start on Saturday, it will be the second time that an injury suffered against MI has forced him to miss the Big Ten title game against Wisconsin. The Buckeyes have understandably been playing matters cautiously with Barrett in practice - he has reportedly looked good after getting work in on Tuesday and Wednesday and is expected to practice on Thursday - but so far, so good.

Pope calls for decisive measures
Rights groups have accused Myanmar's military of atrocities, including mass rape, against Rohingya during the clearance operation. The Vatican says 18 Rohingya refugees from camps in Cox's Bazar will be on hand to greet the pope.

The No. 8 Buckeyes will be in the College Football Playoff conversation with a win over No. 4 Wisconsin on Saturday, though there would still be significant hurdles for OSU to make the final four.

Barrett, a senior, has thrown for 2,728 yards, 32 touchdowns and just seven interceptions on the season.

Trump mulling steps to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital
Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem during the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed it, a move not recognised internationally. The status of Jerusalem is one of the major stumbling blocks in achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
