Ryan Day confirmed that Chip Trayanum is now a full-time running back if the team needs him to be. This was discussed at Tuesday’s presser.

Trayanum could have stepped in at RB if more injuries happened on Saturday. Miyan Williams left the Penn State game with an injury in Week 9. TreVeyon Henderson took over the majority of touches in the Buckeyes’ backfield afterwards.

“He’s a running back full-time as of now,” said Day. “He’s learned the offense, so he was ready to go Saturday if we needed him.”

Trayanum came to Ohio State after transferring from Arizona State in January. He has mostly played at linebacker since getting to Columbus but was a 4-star RB in the 2020 recruiting class with nearly 700 yards rushing for the Sun Devils. Trayanum has 14 total tackles from the eight games he’s played in.

It looks like fans may get to see what Trayanum can do in the backfield if Henderson goes down with an injury. Trayanum has 1 rush for 9 yards so far as a running back.

Ohio State fans will be hoping that no more injuries happen to their backfield regardless.
