Marvin Harrison Jr. is likely done for the night.

The Buckeyes' star wide receiver absorbed a heavy hit to the head/neck area late in the third quarter while attempting to come down with a third-down heave from C.J. Stroud in the back of the end zone. Harrison appeared to fall face-first into the turf and was immediately tended to by medical personnel. 

The hit was ultimately not ruled a targeting upon review, and Ohio State kicked a field goal on the ensuing fourth-down play while Harrison was taken to the medical tent. Harrison left the tent shortly thereafter, but did not have his helmet in hand.

Harrison had already hauled in five passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns by that point, with all of that production coming in the first half alone.
