COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sophomore defensive back Najee Murray has been suspended from Ohio State's football team.
Multiple reports about Murray being dismissed surfaced over the weekend, but head coach Urban Meyer said Sunday at the team's annual preseason media day that Murray is "suspended...for a training camp issue."
Murray played in six games on special teams as a freshman last season before a knee injury ended his season. He came to camp competing for playing time in a crowded secondary. Ohio State has the benefit of veteran leadership in the secondary and talent coming from two straight stellar recruiting classes.
Meyer also announced that freshman defensive tackle Donovan Munger has received NCAA clearance and will join the team this week but has a blood clot issue and will not play in 2013.

Coach Urban Meyer in his press conference today indicated that Munger...
Since speedster Dontre Wilson of DeSoto, Texas committed to Ohio State, the Buckeyes coaching staff has had visions of what his playmaking ability to mean for the team's offense. Through eight practices in his first fall camp at Ohio State, Wilson is proving that impact could be felt early in freshman year.

One of the offseason potholes for the Ohio State football team was the July arrest of freshman tight end Marcus Baugh, who was subsequently given a one-game suspension for the coaching staff. The California native has a good support system in place, though, in the OSU tight ends room.

Media Day is in the books for the Ohio State football team, and the 2013 team appears to be in good shape one week into camp. Urban Meyer was full of praise for many facets of the team but also had to address some continuing issues as he met with a full house at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
