Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr. suffered a right ankle injury in the third quarter of Ohio State’s clash with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. How severe does the injury appear, and what’s the latest on his status?
Marvin Harrison Jr. Injury and Information on Status
Harrison Jr. was injured on a long touchdown run by running back TreVeyon Henderson.
Harrison was a play-side blocker and secured a crucial block for his teammate. But as Henderson ran past, a defender on the chase dove for him and caught Harrison’s right ankle in the process. The defender’s momentum and weight carried into Harrison’s ankle, bending it underneath the scrum.

Harrison Jr. remained down on the field for several moments after the play and had to be tended to by trainers. He was then helped off the field and led to the medical tent, where he received initial evaluations.
Harrison Jr. had just one catch for seven yards so far in this game, but he came into the game with 14 receptions for 304 yards and three touchdowns through the first three contests. Harrison Jr., the son of NFL Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison Sr., is widely regarded as one of the best — if not the best — overall prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Update: Harrison Jr. left the medical tent with his ankle taped, and is still on the sideline with his pads and helmet on.
Update: Harrison Jr. returned to the field on Ohio State’s next drive and caught a pass.
