Ohio State's Justin Fields vows to play Big Ten title game despite injury: 'I don't care how much it hurts'

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields vowed to play in the Big Ten Conference title game Saturday against Wisconsin despite a knee injury.

Fields, who wore a knee brace against Michigan last week, aggravated a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee during the game, according to Buckeye Extra. He said Tuesday he was going to play through the pain.
