RB Henderson expected to return, WR Egbuka questionable as No. 3 Buckeyes prepare to play at Purdue

Ohio State coach Ryan Day says he expected to have running back TreVeyon Henderson back in the lineup for Saturday's game at Purdue

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State running back TreVeyon Henderson is expected to be back in the lineup for the Buckeyes' game at Purdue, coach Ryan Day said Tuesday.

However, another key starter, receiver Emeka Egbuka, remains questionable for Saturday's game in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Henderson, a third-year running back and NFL prospect, was protectively held out of last week's win over Maryland, although he likely could have played, Day said. Henderson missed five games last season because of a broken bone in his left foot that required surgery.

The No. 3 Buckeyes (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) have struggled to establish the run game behind three new starters on the offensive line. They are averaging just 131.6 yards per game on the ground, ninth in the Big Ten.
