Ohio State has released its weekly status report, and there’s some potential good news for Buckeyes fans.
Receiver Chris Olave isn’t listed under “unavailable” or “game-time decision,” which seems to be an indication that he’s going to play vs. Penn State on Saturday.

Olave exited Ohio State’s Week 1 victory over Nebraska after taking a hard hit to the head.
Even with his night being cut short, Olave managed six catches for 104 yards against the Huskers. Olave and Garrett Wilson, when healthy, combine to be one of the most dynamic WR duos in the country.
It would help the Buckeyes’ offense considerably if Justin Fields has both star receivers to target against Penn State. Despite PSU’s loss to Indiana in Week 1, this could end up being a close game for the Buckeyes on the road.
The Buckeyes will be without ten players vs. Penn State: Cornerback Lejond Cavazos, defensive lineman Jacolbe Cowan, running back Marcus Crowley, offensive lineman Gavin Cupp, tight end Patrick Gurd, receiver Jaylen Harris, long snapper Roen McCullough, defensive tackle Jaden McKenzie, defensive back Alec Taylor and safety Kourt Williams.
Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
