An hour before kickoff, Ohio State listed Wilson as unavailable on its final injury report. However, it was unclear why he wasn’t able to play.
Wilson then posted a message on Twitter to let his fans know that he’s doing just fine.
“For those asking, I am all good! I appreciate the prayers,” Wilson tweeted on Saturday morning. “Can’t wait to watch them boys ball here soon against Nebraska. Go Bucks!”
Following the Buckeyes’ win over the Cornhuskers, coach Ryan Day was asked about Wilson’s status. He said the star wideout is “day-to-day” moving forward.
Day added that he’s hopeful Wilson will be back in the lineup for the Buckeyes next week.
Ryan Day said Garrett Wilson is “day-to-day.”
“Hopefully we’ll get him back for next week.”

Ohio State’s offense is undoubtedly at its best when Wilson is available. The junior wide receiver has 43 receptions for 687 yards and six touchdowns this season.
On the bright side, Wilson’s absence did open the door for another wide receiver on Ohio State’s depth chart to step up. Jaxson Smith-Njigba was sensational this afternoon against Nebraska, hauling in 15 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown.
The Buckeyes will try to keep things rolling next Saturday against the Boilermakers.
