Ryan Day confirmed on Wednesday that offensive lineman Avery Henry has medically retired from football. However, Henry will remain with the team throughout the upcoming season.

Henry announced in December of last year that he had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that is most often found in teenagers and young adults. He began treatment in January at Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital and, back in May, revealed that his cancer was in remission.

Day told reporters at the Big Ten’s media event on Wednesday that Henry underwent a procedure that will “make it virtually impossible to play football.”

Henry is in his second year with the Buckeye program after redshirting last fall. He signed with the program as a 3-star prospect from Saint Clairsville.

He shared a bit more about his situation on his Twitter page:
