Redshirt freshman Evan Pryor is expected to miss the season with a season-ending knee injury.
Last season, Pryor scored his first career touchdown against Akron and averaged 4.7 yards per rush, recording 98 rushing yards on 21 carries across four games.
Ohio State will have three scholarship running backs available heading into the season with TreVeyon Henderson, Miyan Williams and true freshman Dallan Hayden. The Buckeyes also have walk-ons Cayden Saunders, TC Caffey and Chase Brecht on the roster.
