Ohio State suspends DB Webb before Northern Illinois game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) No. 1 Ohio State has suspended defensive back Damon Webb before its game against Northern Illinois for an unspecified violation of athletic department policy.

The school did not say how long Webb would be held out.

The sophomore is the Buckeyes' third cornerback and nickel back. He has eight tackles for Ohio State (2-0) and figured to play a lot against the Huskies, who rank ninth in the nation in passing yards per game at 374.5.
