Ohio State football issues availability report for Iowa game, key return

The Ohio State football program has issued the availability report for the game against Iowa, and there are a few notable names that will not be taking part in game No. 7.

With the bye week in the books, we expected the Buckeyes to be close to 100% and obviously, everyone being healthy is impossible in this tough game, but it does look like some key Buckeyes will return to action.

Most Ohio State fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of All-American caliber receiver, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and he has finally been removed from the weekly availability list. Unfortunately starting corner, Cam Brown, will be unavailable.
