Ohio State’s TreVeyon Henderson to have foot surgery.

Read Time:2 Minute, 7 Second

TreVeyon Henderson, Ohio State’s running back, will not be able to attend the College Football Playoff.

Henderson tweeted Tuesday night that he was unable to play the rest of this season because of Friday’s surgery for a lingering foot problem. He told the Columbus Dispatch He stated that he had suffered from a fractured left foot and torn ligaments, and that the pain was worsening every game.

“It’s real painful,” Henderson told the paper. “I barely practiced the entire season. I tried many different cleats to help me through it. But the pain was unbearable. I really don’t know how I was able to push through it in the games I did play in. I just tried to do the best I can.”

The sophomore is Ohio State’s second-leading rusher despite playing in just eight games and carrying the ball just 107 times. He has 571 yards, six touchdowns. No. 4 Ohio State plays No. 1 Georgia will play in the Peach Bowl at New Year’s Eve. The winner plays No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 TCU for national title

Ohio State hasn’t had a healthy season at running back. Miyan Wilkins, Ohio State’s leading rusher has missed two games. He now has 817 yards with 13 touchdowns and 125 carries. Dallan Hayden has run for 510 yards, and has played in nine of his games.

Hayden was the team’s leading rusher in wins over Indiana and Maryland in November. He rushed for 102 yard against the Hoosiers, and 146 against the Terrapins. Williams, on the other hand, had eight carries and had only two carries for seven yard against Michigan. The Buckeyes’ leading rusher that game ended up being Deamonte Travanum.

Travanum, Williams and Hayden will be Ohio State’s leading rushing options against Georgia without Henderson in the lineup. Henderson ended up missing three of Ohio State’s final four games of the regular season.

In 2021, Henderson was an instant star as a freshman. He rushed for 1,248 yard and 15 touchdowns and had 27 catches of 312 yards and four touchdowns. He was a preseason favorite for the 2022 Heisman trophy along with C.J. Stroud. If he’s fully healthy entering 2023, Henderson will likely be near the top of the Heisman odds board once again.
