Ohio State will be without the services of 15 players for its Saturday night top-20 showdown against Penn State. Among those sidelined players are running back Master Teague and offensive lineman Harry Miller, both of whom will miss their second straight game.

Teague is second on the fifth-ranked Buckeyes (6-1, 4-0 Big Ten) this season with 43 carries and third with 245 rushing yards. The junior from Tennessee earned second-team All-Big Ten honors last season and was third-team all-league in 2019.

With Teague out, Ohio State will lean heavily on freshman TreVeyon Henderson, redshirt freshman Miyan Williams and freshman Evan Pryor against Penn State (5-2, 2-2). Those three youngsters the only non-quarterbacks to carry the ball for the Buckeyes in last week’s 54-7 win over Indiana.

Henderson leads Ohio State with 693 yards and 11 TDs on the ground this season, while Williams is second with 309 rushing yards.

A junior who started last year at left guard, Miller will miss his sixth game of the season.
