Ohio State is 3-0 and cruising along, but the Buckeyes aren't at their peak of health yet.

Fortunately, head coach Ryan Day reiterated tonight that he doesn't expect injured starter Travian Henderson,

Mike Hall, Josh Proctor and Tanner McAllister will be out for a long time, if at all.

During his appearance at 97.1 on The Fan Tonight, Day said that all four players haven't been out in a long time.

And could possibly return later this week.

"They're not all long-term injuries. So we're going to do our best to keep them healthy," Day said through Eleven Warriors.

"They're working hard on their rehab because we're going to need all those guys for this weekend."

Henderson, Buckeye's top running back, left the win at Toledo last weekend with a foot injury.

Hall, a defensive lineman, dressed for the game but did not play,

While on Safari Proctor and McCallister were not dressed at all.

Ohio State went on to beat Toledo 77–21 without these four major contributors.

The Buckeyes will host Wisconsin this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
