Ohio State defensive back Sevyn Banks has a lot of eyes on him going into this season as he’s projected to be one of the best players in their secondary.

However, he’s been absent from practice the last couple of days as Ryan Day said he “tweaked something.”

Strom also has a follow-up tweet where he reports that Banks was seen limping a bit after practice on Friday.

It doesn’t sound like the injury is too serious and the Buckeyes better hope it isn’t. Banks is coming off his best season yet as he had 23 total tackles (19 solo) with an interception and fumble recovery. He also finished the season with 7 passes defended. Prior to 2020, his best season had been in 2019 when he had 11 total tackles (10 solo) with 1 interception.

Earlier on Monday, Banks talked all about how he wants to anchor the secondary for the 2021 season as he feels like this is his time. Here’s hoping this injury doesn’t set that back.
