After it was posted on Facebook through his mother that offensive guard Harry Miller would be out for the Sugar Bowl against Clemson, Miller’s name showed up on Ohio State’s status report as one of 16 players listed as unavailable for Friday’s showdown.
Also joining Miller was defensive end Zach Harrison and running back Master Teague, who may be out due to the injury he suffered in the Big Ten Championship against Northwestern.
The status report does not specify the reason for players listed, only stating “individuals listed as unavailable this week may be unavailable because of injury, rehabilitation because of an injury or illness.”
Others listed as unavailable against the Tigers include cornerback Cameron Brown, defensive lineman Jacolbe Cowan, defensive end Tyler Friday, offensive lineman Josh Fryar, defensive tackle Zaid Hamdan, wide receiver Jaylen Harris, linebacker Cade Kacherski, tight end Joe Royer, quarterback Danny Vanatsky, guard Enokk Vimahi, offensive lineman Grant Toutant, safety Kourt Williams and linebacker Craig Young.
Brown, Cowan, Hamdan, Harris, Kacherski and Williams were all listed in the status report against Northwestern.
Also listed in the report as safety Ronnie Hickman, who did not play against Northwestern due to an injury. Safety Marcus Hooker also was out against the Wildcats with an undisclosed injury, but is not listed and is set to return to face Clemson.
Wide receiver Chris Olave, linebacker Baron Browning and punter Drue Chrisman, who were out for the Big Ten Championship, were not mentioned on the report and are active against the Tigers.
