Ohio State running back to miss 2022 season with injury
Ohio State will be a little shorthanded when it hosts Notre Dame in Week 1.
The Buckeyes will be without Evan Pryor, who recently suffered a season-ending injury per multiple reports. Pryor was expected to fight for playing time alongside TreVeyon Henderson and Miyan Williams.
Pryor seemed to confirmed the news with this message on Tuesday afternoon.
Appreciate all of the prayers and get well wishes. But this is just the start to an amazing story. I will be back #Buckeyes
