Senior tight end Jeff Heuerman and sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson are listed as "probable" for Ohio State’s National Championship Game bout against Oregon, head coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday.
Heuerman, a captain, has dealt with lingering issues from a foot surgery in the spring all season. He was limping in the locker room following the team’s 42-35 win against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl last week.
Wilson, who broke his foot against Michigan State Nov. 7, has been recovering from surgery for the last two months.
Both are important cogs to an offense that is averaging 45 points and 510 yards a game.
Ohio State plays the Ducks next Monday at 8:30 p.m. at AT&T Stadium in North Texas.
