Ohio State football Jaxon Smith-Njigba injury

How Much Will Jaxon Smith-Njigba Be Able To Play At Penn State?

In his last full game, Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba put up the single greatest performance in school history, with 15 catches for 347 yards and three touchdowns. However, he hasn’t been able to stay on the field for a complete 60 minutes since then.

Tuesday, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day provided an update on Smith-Njigba’s status, as well as a number of other big storylines leading in to this weekend’s big game in State College against Penn State.

Kevin Noon of BuckeyeHuddle.com joins host Tom Orr to discuss them all including:

  • The challenge of playing in front of a hostile Beaver Stadium crowd
  • How Day balances coaching CJ Stroud during games without overwhelming him with too much information
  • The remarkable comeback season for Lathan Ransom, who was named a Thorpe Award semifinalist this week
  • The status of defensive backs Josh Proctor and Cameron Brown, who missed the Iowa game
  • The challenge posed by Penn State’s dynamic pair of cornerbacks
  • Whether the Buckeyes script specific plays on offense at the start of the game
