Ohio State RB TreVeyon Henderson Cleared For Return To Football Activities

Ohio State Buckeyes running back TreVeyon Henderson's injury-riddled sophomore season limited him to 571 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Ohio State Buckeyes running back TreVeyon Henderson said on Twitter Sunday that he is "officially cleared" to return to full contact.

Henderson was suited up and went through warmups, but was one of 12 Buckeyes who missed Saturday's spring game. After missing the Peach Bowl last season, Henderson spent this offseason recovering from a lingering foot injury from last season that limited him to just eight games last season.

Henderson said his foot was "beat up," as he had broken one of the two sesamoid bones in his left foot which limited his ability to push off the turf.

However, the Hopewell, VA. native said April 5 he felt "100 percent."

"I feel like I'm back to myself," Henderson said. "I'm running full speed. I'm back to cutting, you know, so I'm feeling great now."

The 5-10, 214-pound running back said he didn't feel "himself" at all after he initially suffered the injury in week 3 against Toledo Sept. 17.

On 107 carries last season, Henderson ran for 571 yards and six touchdowns. He hauled in four passes for 28 yards and one score.

In 2019, Henderson scored 19 touchdowns, breaking the true freshman program record.

However, his return did not come without hardship.

Henderson told The Columbus Dispatch in February that he and the coaching staff had heart-to-heart talks in which they "got everything off our chest," smoothing out the tension

"There was some stuff involved around this injury that I didn't respect — not even coming from outside but inside of the building," Henderson said. "It hurt me a lot."

However, that's behind Henderson as he looks ahead to 2023 where he has "a lot of expectations" for himself.

"I hold myself to a high standard, and I definitely didn't play up to that standard, my standard, last year," Henderson said. "So this year I just want to play up to my standard again. Like I've said, I feel like I'm back to myself and I'm ready. I'm ready whenever the coaches and the trainers let me free. I'm going to do whatever I can."
