Urban Meyer has good news for Ohio State fans.
During his weekly press conference, Meyer said Braxton Miller has a sore neck, but the coach expects his star quarterback to play against Penn State this week. Even better, Miller will hit the field with team tomorrow for practice in preparation of the game this Saturday.
“All the test results came back negative, which is positive,” Meyer said. “He is very sore, he has a sore neck. We expect him to practice tomorrow.”
Miller’s availability for the Penn State game looked very much in doubt Saturday afternoon when the sophomore quarterback was brought down hard at the end of a 37-yard run in the third quarter against Purdue.
Miller was on the turf for over four minutes before members of the medical training staff gingerly helped him off the field. He was carted back to the locker room after failing to stand without assistance, and was later transported to the Wexner Medical Center located nearby Ohio Stadium.
