Bosa was sidelined after he sustained a core muscle injury against TCU. He had surgery September 20 but no timetable was set for his return.

“I was hopeful that Nick would be able to return to play again for us,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. “I know this was an extremely difficult and emotional decision for Nick and his family, and I wish him well as he moves on to get himself 100 percent healthy and ready for his next chapter. I want to thank Nick for the remarkable efforts he gave for this program. He is a first-class young man who we have been honored to coach.”

In three starts this season, Bosa had six tackles-for-loss and four sacks. He was leading the team in tackles with 14 at the time of his injury.

Bosa played in 30 games for the Buckeyes.
