Chase Young returns to action this week for No. 2 Ohio State in its top 10 matchup with No. 8 Penn State Saturday, and he’s not the only Buckeye coming back to the fold.

Senior defensive end Jonathon Cooper has missed seven games with an undisclosed ankle injury, but he will be available against the Nittany Lions, according to the team’s weekly status report.

Senior wide receiver Austin Mack, redshirt senior cornerback Damon Arnette and junior linebacker Baron Browning all sat out against Rutgers this past weekend, but are available for the Buckeyes this week.

Mack is fifth on the team with 15 catches and 207 receiving yards, Arnette leads all Buckeye corners with 24 tackles, and Browning is second among Ohio State linebackers with six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks this season.

Junior defensive tackle Haskell Garrett and redshirt senior offensive lineman Joshua Alabi are listed as game-time decisions, and sophomore safety Josh Proctor will be unavailable for the first time this season.
