The Buckeyes’ have had a fiery start to the season with three straight wins so far. Nevertheless, they have had a decent amount of injuries scattered throughout their first few games. One of which is their starting running back, TreVeyon Henderson.
Henderson kicked off the game by scoring a touchdown on Ohio State’s opening drive against Toledo. However soon after, he exited the field and made his way into the locker room. At the end of the first quarter, TreVeyon reappeared on the sidelines with a slight limp accompanied by the Buckeye training staff with no helmet on. Prior to his injury, he ran the ball four times for 19 yards, including a 7 yard touchdown run. After #32 left the game, the coaching staff turned to Miyan Williams and Dallen Hayden to fill his position for the remaining time.
Following the 77-21 win against Toledo, Henderson exited the team’s locker room in a walking boot. When asked about the nature of Henderson’s injury as well as other players’, head coach Ryan Day responded, “It’s just a short term thing…We haven’t seen anything that we think is going to be long-term. So we’ll kind of regroup after tonight and figure out where everything’s at. But this was a situation with a lot of those guys that we just wanted to use an abundance of caution, to make sure they were 100 percent before we put them in the game.”
The coaching staff did not allude to any specific surrounding the injury. However, Coach Day stated on Tuesday that TeVeyon Henderson is expected to be available to play this week against Wisconsin.
Following Ohio State’s win last Saturday, Henderson tweeted, “Be back soon.. Great team win!”
