Ohio State running back Miyan Williams will play against Michigan on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
Williams, who was ejected against Indiana on Nov. 12, missed last week’s win over Maryland. With TreVeyon Henderson out, Williams will be an integral part of the Buckeyes’ offense as they will rely on him for the majority of their run game.
Williams is Ohio State’s leading rusher, entering the day with 783 yards and an average of 6.7 per carry.
As for Michgian’s injured running back, Blake Corum should try to battle a knee injury he suffered last week, according to Thamel, but it’s unclear how effective he’ll be.
Corum returned to the Wolverines’ win over Illinois last week after suffering the injury, but carried the ball just twice in the second half.
Donovan Edwards is expected to return from a hand injury that kept him out of the game against Illinois. Offensive lineman Trevor Keegan and tight end Luke Schoonmaker are also expected to play, according to Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider.
Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who has been out of Ohio State since Oct. 22, will miss The Game, according to Thamel.
