Ohio State sophomore running back TreVeyon Henderson will miss the Peach Bowl for the Buckeyes due to surgery to repair an injured foot.
Henderson tweeted out the news early Tuesday evening.
Henderson confirmed the need for surgery to Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch.
“I have to have surgery on my foot because it’s gotten that bad since the third game,” Henderson told The Dispatch. “I’ve just been making it worse going back out there.”
Henderson has missed four games for Ohio State this year, including three of the last four. He played against Maryland one week before the Michigan game and carried the ball 11 times for just 19 yards.
For the season, Henderson has rushed for 571 yards on 107 carries, scoring six touchdowns.
As a true freshman a year ago, Henderson rushed for 1,248 yards on 183 carries with 15 touchdowns. He also caught 27 passes for 312 yards and another four touchdowns.
Without Henderson in the College Football Playoff against Georgia, the Buckeyes will again turn to Miyan Williams. Williams leads the team with 817 yards rushing this season.
The Buckeyes will also have freshman Dallan Hayden available. Hayden has rushed for 510 yards on the season, including back-to-back games of over 100 yards leading up to the game against Michigan. Hayden carried the ball just twice against Michigan, which Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said was a product of the flow of the game.
