Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said Tuesday that redshirt junior running back Miyan Williams is out for the season after undergoing a procedure on an injured knee.
Williams missed Ohio State’s win this past weekend over Wisconsin, and Day confirmed that the ailment that held him out led to season-ending surgery for Williams, who is in his fourth season with the Buckeyes and has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
“I feel really bad with Miyan,” Day said. “He’s not going to be able to play. He’s had a procedure done. That is a big hit for that room and our team. He’s done a lot of great things for our team.”
Williams finishes the season with 158 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 49 carries, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. With Williams out, Ohio State will look to TreVeyon Henderson, who returned against the Badgers and rushed 24 times for 162 yards and a touchdown, as well as Chip Trayanum and potentially Dallan Hayden, who Day had previously indicated that he hopes to redshirt this season.
