Jaxon Smith-Njigba has missed a considerable amount of time for the Ohio State Buckeyes recently.

He and Marvin Harrison Jr. are probably the nation’s top WR tandem when fully healthy, and having a team’s No. 2 DB on one of them would be a major boon moving forward if Championship dreams are to be fulfilled. First, the Buckeyes have to get him on the field.

Ryan Day addressed Smith-Njigba’s status ahead of the Peach Bowl against No. 1 Georgia.

“We’ll probably have more of an update over the next couple of days on exactly where that’s at,” Day said Sunday.
