Marvin Harrison Jr. injured while blocking for TreVeyon Henderson TD
Marvin Harrison Jr. just made a beautiful block to help spring TreVeyon Henderson for the first touchdown of the night in South Bend. Unfortunately, Ohio State’s superstar receiver was injured on the play.
After forcing Notre Dame into a turnover on downs, the Buckeyes went to the ground with a hand-off to Henderson. He bounced to the outside and was able to get past the second level of the defense on a beautiful block by Harrison.
Unfortunately, Harrison’s legs and ankles were rolled into by an Irish defender. The right ankle of Harrison appeared to be particularly hit hard on the play.

Harrison was eventually helped off the field and has been seen walking gingerly with little weight on the ankle. He also spent time in the medical tent.
The play was a beautifully executed one and a major score for the Buckeyes, but the bigger picture now is the health of the star.
