The Buckeyes released their game notes for this week’s Penn State match-up. The Buckeyes have listed Braxton Miller as the starting QB, which is an early indication they expect him to play. Unlike many pro sports teams, the Buckeyes do tend to change their depth chart to reflect injuries and player movement.
RB Jordan Hall is also listed as a co-starter in the backfield with Carlos Hyde, an indication he may be ready to go this week after sitting out the last 3 games with a knee injury.
Obviously things could change this week for both players. If Hall is able to return, that could help limit Miller’s rushing attempts. Even if Hall can’t go, Meyer may want to consider giving more reps to Carlos Hyde and Rod Smith.
UPDATE: Urban Meyer said Braxton Miller is “very sore”, especially his neck. He said the injury was ‘a whiplash like inujry’. He is expected to practice Tuesday. LB Sabino will not be ready to go this week.
