Sad: Ohio State Buckeyes suspended TreVeyon Henderson today due to

Ohio State football running back TreVeyon Henderson held out today.


Running back TreVeyon Henderson, who led Ohio State in rushing through the first month of the season, was held out of Saturday’s 37-17 win over Maryland with an unspecified injury.



He was among six scholarship players who were listed as out on the Buckeyes’ pregame availability report released two hours ahead of kickoff.



Coach Ryan Day did not address the nature of Henderson’s injury, but said he expected him to return next week.


“The decision was made to hold him this week,” Day said, “and make sure that he’s full-go next week, because we know we got a lot of football ahead of us.”



Henderson missed five games last season because of a broken bone in his left foot that required surgery in December before making a full recovery.



Though he was held out, Henderson moved well enough on the field that he caught passes with the running backs and receivers and did some light stretching in an early round of warmups.


Henderson rushed for a season-high 104 yards in the Buckeyes’ 17-14 win at Notre Dame two weeks ago, including a 61-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.



The Buckeyes turned to Chip Trayanum, who was the primary complement to Henderson in the early weeks and ran in for the game-winning touchdown at the goal line against the Irish, to start. Trayanum rushed for 61 yards on 20 carries.


Coach Ryan Day said earlier this week that Miyan Williams was also up for a larger role against the Terrapins following a good week of practice. Williams led the Buckeyes in rushing last season while Henderson was hampered by his injured foot, but has been the effective third back this fall.
