Buckeye head coach Ryan Day said Thursday Williams had been dealing with a stomach bug but was seen participating in the team’s practice drills during the media’s viewing window as Ohio State prepares to play Georgia in the Peach Bowl Saturday night.

Williams missed media availability with his offensive teammates Tuesday and was not on the practice field Wednesday, WBNS reports.

He leads Ohio State with 817 rushing yards this season.

The Buckeye backfield has been hit by injuries all year.

TreVeyon Henderson announced earlier this month he would require surgery on his foot, according to WBNS. The Buckeyes lost Evan Pryor to a knee injury during training camp and T.C. Caffey was also hurt in October.

Ohio State will play Georgia in the Peach Bowl Saturday night in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff in Atlanta.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.
