Ohio State's biggest star on offense suffered an injury but returned to action against Notre Dame on Saturday.

Marvin Harrison Jr. left the Buckeyes' contest with Notre Dame in the third quarter after going down with an apparent ankle injury on a 61-yard touchdown run from TreVeyon Henderson.

Harrison was throwing a block on the left side of the play to help spring Henderson when Notre Dame safety Xavier Watts dove at Henderson's legs, missed, and instead landed at Harrison's feet, bending his right ankle at an awkward angle.

Harrison needed assistance to walk off the field and was taken into Ohio State's medical tent.

During Notre Dame's following drive, Harrison emerged from the medical tent with his right ankle heavily taped. He went through various exercises with Ohio State's training staff, who at first took his helmet but then returned it to him.

Harrison re-entered the contest on Ohio State's following drive.
