Ohio State football running back TreVeyon Henderson was unavailable for the Buckeyes’ final game of the 2022 regular season with a foot injury, but was on the sideline with a walking boot on his left foot.
After Ohio State’s 45-23 loss to rival Michigan — the program’s second loss to the Wolverines in two years — Henderson clapped back at a deleted tweet questioning the toughness and culture of the Buckeyes.
With that, he revealed the severity of an injury that kept him out against Rutgers, Northwestern, Indiana and Michigan, while keeping him limited against Maryland.

“The culture here is just fine,” Henderson tweeted Sunday night. “You try and come practice/play with torn ligaments and a broken bone in your foot every week.. My brothers know I been trying to do whatever it take to fight alongside of them every week. Carry on..”
