ATLANTA — Ohio State’s depth at tight end against Georgia could be a little thinner.
Gee Scott Jr., a reserve tight end, was listed as a game-time decision on the availability report for Saturday night’s College Football Playoff semifinal.
Scott appeared limited during an open period of practice at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday.
As one of the backups behind Cade Stover at the position, Scott has caught five passes for 28 yards and a touchdown. He was sidelined for most of the second half of last month’s loss to Michigan at the end of the regular season after he drew a personal-foul penalty for head butting one of the Wolverines’ players.

Starting running back Miyan Williams and right guard Matt Jones are both available as expected.
Williams had missed practice on Wednesday with an illness before returning the following day. Jones had been out with a foot injury against the Wolverines, but practiced this week. Neither was included on the report.
Eleven players were listed as unavailable on the report, including receiver Kamryn Babb, running back TreVeyon Henderson, offensive lineman Avery Henry, linebacker Mitchell Melton, running back Evan Pryor, long snapper Brad Robinson, receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba and safety Kourt Williams.
