COLUMBUS - Braxton Miller went from Ohio Stadium to the Ohio State Medical Center Saturday afternoon.
With an all-clear on his medical exams, Ohio State's quarterback will be back on the practice field Tuesday.
Miller was released from the hospital a few hours after checking in, and a school statement Saturday night said he'd been examined and cleared. On Monday, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said all of Miller's test results came back "negative. He's very sore, has a sore neck. We expect him to practice tomorrow."
That would put Miller on track to play in what's suddenly a really big game this Saturday at Penn State. Neither team is postseason eligible, but both the 8-0 Buckeyes and 5-2 Nittany Lions are undefeated in conference play. They're tied atop the Big Ten's Leaders Division.
Meyer said Miller "got, like, a whiplash" last weekend while being tackled against Purdue. It made for a scary moment for a lot of reasons -- Meyer admitted seeing the Buckeyes season flash before his eyes -- but Meyer said the most important thing was seeing that Miller was OK, which he now is.
"He's just rattled," Meyer said. "And once he settled down, he seemed to be fine. And he made a comment to me he's never really been hurt, never really been as far as a bruise or a contusion or a sprained ankle, but never been like that, and it kind of rattled him a little bit, like it would rattle most athletes."
Miller is Ohio State's leading rusher by volume and by numbers, with 141 carries for 1,096 yards and 10 touchdown runs on the season.
"He's our best player," Meyer said.
Meyer said he's "very concerned" about the number of stiff shots Miller has taken this season but confident that Miller will come back the same player.
He'll need to. Asked how much Miller's injury status might affect the playcalling at Penn State, Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman said "none. We have to win the game."
Said Meyer: "He doesn't go down very easily, and he's a competitive guy. The good thing is he usually bounces right back up. This one was a tough one."Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton came in and helped a last-second comeback that allowed Ohio State to eventually beat Purdue in overtime. Meyer said "it's too early to tell" what Guiton's role might be this week, but he said Guiton has earned the confidence of his coaching staff and the opportunity to play when he's called upon.
QUICK HITS: Freshman defensive back Devan Bogard, a key player on the Buckeyes' kick return units, is out for the season with a torn ACL. Meyer said senior linebacker Etienne Sabino is still out with a leg injury, meaning former fullback Zach Boren will remain at linebacker. Meyer said wide receiver Corey Brown and freshman linebacker Joshua Perry should be in practice this week after leaving the Purdue game with injuries.
