Ohio State's starting running back suffered an apparent leg injury in Week 3 and has missed three games since, including Saturday's forthcoming matchup with the Hoosiers. Ryan Day said he expects Ohio State to play more depth at running back this week, but Arizona State transfer Chip Trayanum – who switched from linebacker to running back midway through the season – is also not in uniform after being listed as a game-time decision.
Along with Henderson, star wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba has been ruled out of his seventh game as he continues to recover from an ongoing hamstring injury.
Starting right tackle Dawand Jones appeared on an Ohio State status report for the first time this season. He was listed as a game-time decision, but Josh Fryar started in his place for the Buckeyes' opening offensive drive. Jones is on the Ohio State sideline but not wearing a helmet, indicating he is unlikely to play in Saturday’s game.
Cameron Brown appears to be healthy enough to play for the first time since before the bye week. Brown hasn't taken a snap since Ohio State's Week 6 win over Michigan State and has sat out for five of Ohio State’s last six games. Meanwhile, Denzel Burke – like Jones – is on the sidelines but is not wearing a helmet even though he was not listed on the initial status report. He was seen riding an exercise bike before the game, but the Buckeyes ultimately opted to hold him out of the lineup.
Fifth-year senior wide receiver Kamryn Babb is also available for the first time this season after missing the first nine games of the year with a knee injury.
The Buckeyes seek a 10-0 start to the season Saturday when they kick off against the Hoosiers at noon in Columbus.
