SBI asset quality remains healthy: Chairman Khara

Finance
Mumbai: The asset quality situation at State Bank of India (SBI) remains healthy and the faster-than-expected economic recovery may limit the impact to lenders' balance sheets, the bank's Chairman Dinesh Kumar Khara said on Thursday. He, however, did not share details on the COVID-related loan restructuring for SBI citing the silent period ahead of the results.

Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields says his knee is 80 to 85 percent healthy, just days before the Buckeyes take on Clemson in one of the two national semifinals of the College Football Playoff. Fields made the comments to reporters Tuesday ahead of his team's appearance in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. The Heisman Trophy finalist plans to wear a brace during the game against the Tigers. "My knee's probably not where I want it to be right now," Fields said. "But I think with treatment every day and just resting it every day, hopefully, it will be better by the game." Fields aggravated a previous knee injury twice during the season -- in the Buckeyes' Nov. 23 win against Penn State and again in their big rivalry game victory at Michigan a week later. Fields has had only...
