Williams, Smith-Njigba of Ohio State not available in Maryland

Ohio State is running backwards Miyan Williams and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba are among nine players unavailable for Saturday’s game in Maryland, which kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.

Williams suffered an apparent right ankle injury in the second quarter of last week’s win over Indiana. He was carted off the field and spotted in a hiking boot on crutches in the second half.

Williams’ absence is made easier by the fact that both TreVeyon Henderson and Chip Trayanum will be available on Saturday as a replacement for the head coach ryan day‘s statement that he expects at least two of the three back this week.
