Running back Miyan Williams of the Ohio State Buckeyes has been a key component of the team’s offensive attack for the past few years. He led the team in rushing last year with 825 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 6.4 yards per carry. But he hasn’t played for the Buckeyes nearly as much as he should have, and it appears he will be out for the remainder of the campaign.

Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day announced on Tuesday that Miyan Williams will be out for the remainder of the season after undergoing an unspecified medical procedure.

I feel really bad with Miyan, he’s not going to be able to play. He’s had a procedure done. That is a big hit for that room and our team. He’s done a lot of great things for our team,” Ryan Day said on Tuesday, according to Steve Helwagen of Bucknuts in a post on X, the social media website formerly known as Twitter.

Day did not specify the nature or severity of the season, nor did he say whether Williams could rejoin the squad the following year.

Williams’ season-long absence means that Ohio State will probably rely much more on TreVeyon Henderson and Chip Trayanum moving forward. Dallan Hayden may also receive more playing time, even though the team attempted to redshirt Hayden this year.
