Update: Williams has a hoodie on under his uniform, so he’s not coming back in this one.

Update: It looks to be a hand injury for Williams at the moment. He is back on the sidelines, but does not have his helmet on. Henderson is in the game for Ohio State.

Ohio State Buckeyes running back Miyan Williams appeared to suffer a hand injury Saturday against the Penn State Nittany Lions as he rushed on second down. Williams was apparently already battling a knee injury coming into the contest and took a shot to the knee on the run as well.

Williams did leave the field on his own power, but a trainer was checking on his hand during the walk back to the Ohio State sideline. That suggests there could be multiple issues for Williams to overcome if he wants to get back into this game.
Fortunately for the Buckeyes, they have another excellent rusher in TreVeyon Henderson. He’ll likely take the majority of the team’s carries going forward, even if Williams is cleared to come back into the game. Williams does have the lone touchdown of the contest so far, as Ohio State leads Penn State 10-0 early.
