Miller ‘fine’ after being hurt in Buckeyes’ win
Question of the Day
COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was “doing fine” after being taken to a hospital and undergoing tests in the wake of an injury sustained late in the third quarter of No. 7 Ohio State’s 29-22 overtime win over Purdue on Saturday.
“He passed all of the tests and he’s getting ready to be released,” said Emig, who added that there were no symptoms of a concussion or other serious injury.
Earlier, Meyer had said he didn’t know Miller’s exact injury or his status.
“I think it’s (his) head and that concerns all of us,” he said at that time.
Miller, mentioned among the top Heisman Trophy contenders, was at the end of a 37-yard run when he was thrown to the turf by cornerback Josh Johnson.
Miller didn’t get up for several minutes _ he was in obvious pain _ while he was attended by several doctors and trainers. Eventually he sat up, then stood on shaky legs for at least 60 seconds before he was led to the sidelines. He was later taken to the locker room by cart.
Miller completed 9 of 20 passes for 113 yards with an interception and ran for 47 yards on 12 carries before leaving the game.
His replacement, Kenny Guiton, led Ohio State to a touchdown with 3 seconds left, then after that scoring pass also threw a two-point conversion pass to send the game into overtime.
In the overtime, Carlos Hyde scored on a 1-yard plunge for the Buckeyes before Purdue failed to complete any of its four passes.
