Tucker, after the Ohio State game on Saturday, mentioned more of Mangham’s injury.
“On a positive note, Jaden Mangham – he was in the locker room with us just now with his teammates,” Tucker said following Ohio State loss via SI.com. “Obviously, he went to the hospital, they ran some tests, he was in good shape, so he came back. So, that was a positive.”
