After exiting the Penn State game in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury, Miyan Williams delivered a message to Buckeye Nation from his Twitter account.

Williams' injury occurred with only seconds remaining in the opening frame. He stayed down on the Penn State sideline following a 5-yard carry, causing members of the Ohio State medical staff to run across the field to tend to him. Once he returned to his feet, the third-year running back went straight to the Buckeye medical tent before quickly being escorted off the field with trainers by his side.

The issue appeared to be with Williams' right hand, although he was also seen icing his knee after returning to the sideline in street clothes to start the second half.

Williams has had a history of ailments this season, including missing the  Michigan State game in Week 6 due to an undisclosed injury. He returned after the bye week to play against Iowa this past weekend but only mustered 19 yards on 10 carries on a season-worst day for the Buckeye running game.

After a slow start for the run game once again on Saturday, Williams injected some life into the Buckeyes' rushing attack with a four-yard touchdown – his 10th of the season – on his first touch of the contest. The score gave Ohio State a 10-0 lead after the extra point.

But Williams was injured on his very next attempt. Ohio State's leading rusher on the season returned to the field with his helmet in hand in the second quarter but did not suit up in the third quarter. He did not play for the rest of the game.
