While TreVeyon Henderson and Chip Trayanum will return to add some depth to the Ohio State Football running back room against Maryland, the Buckeyes will still be without their leading rusher.
After being helped off the field and taken to the dressing room late in the first half against Indiana, Ohio State forward Miyan Williams is unavailable Saturday afternoon against Maryland.

Before the injury, Williams had 147 rushing yards on 15 carries, including a 48-yard touchdown run. But when he returned to the sidelines in the second half, he wore a jockey on his right foot and used crutches.
“Based on what we saw in the locker room, it didn’t look like it was going to be anything really long-term, so we’ll see how he feels overnight,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day said of Williams’ condition after the game.
