Northwestern forward John Shurna still has not been cleared to play against undefeated No. 1 Ohio State on Saturday, and coach Bill Carmody said he will not know if the 6-8 junior can play until a mere hours before the 5 p.m. tip off. Shurna suffered a concussion at Minnesota Wednesday night.
Shurna was at practice Friday but sat on the bench wearing a protective boot on his left foot. Shurna is also recovering from a high left ankle sprain.
