SO SAD: one of Ohio’s finest players will miss the game between Wisconsin and Ohio State.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State football’s injured starters are trending in the right direction to play Saturday at Wisconsin.

Buckeyes coach Ryan Day confirmed to reporters at the team hotel in Madison that both cornerback Denzel Burke and receiver Emeka Egbuka made the trip. Both missed last weeks’ game against Penn State due to injury.

Day earlier in the week confirmed running back TreVeyon Henderson was “full go.” He had not played in any of the past three games since a Sept. 23 win at Notre Dame.

Burke suffered his unspecified injury during the third quarter of a 41-7 victory at Purdue on Oct. 14. Prior to that he had been playing the best football of his career, with a team-high seven pass breakups.

Egbuka was injured a week before that, in a 37-17 victory over Maryland. Fellow receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. later classified it as an ankle injury similar to one he also dealt with this season. Despite missing two-plus games, Egbuka ranks third on the Buckeyes in receptions (22) and yards (303) and is tied for second with three touchdown receptions.
