Ohio State junior defensive end and captain Zach Harrison is the most noticeable and surprising name this week on the Buckeyes' game day status report.
Harrison has started each of the first two games for the Rushmen, but he's been less effective in getting to the quarterback so far this year than fans are used to seeing. Ohio State does not elaborate on the nature why a player is unavailable, so we don't know if Harrison is dealing with an injury. But that could explain why he struggled a bit last week against Oregon.
Meanwhile, junior center Harry Miller will miss his third consecutive game to begin the season. Miller was the starting left guard last year and was projected to be the team's starting center. He was spotted coming off the practice field on Wednesday, but he's not available for today's game. Luke Wypler will continue to start in his place.
Lastly, senior linebacker Terajda Mitchell is considered a game-time decision. He's recorded 21 tackles so far this season and is widely viewed as the captain of the defense.
Here is this week's Game Day Status Report:
- LB Terajda Mitchell
- WR Kamryn Babb

- DE Zach Harrison
- OL Jakob James
- BUL Jaylen Johnson
- OL Trey Leroux
