Ohio State's QB Expected to Play this Week

By  | 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, helped off the field and taken to a hospital during Saturday's game, says he is fine and will be ready to go against Penn State.

Miller has practiced with the Buckeyes all week. He has been receiving daily rehab of massage, stretching, ice and anti-inflammatories for a sore neck. Other than that, he says he's 100 percent.

Miller was tackled from behind by Purdue defensive back Josh Johnson late in the third quarter of No. 9 Ohio State's home game. He was thrown hard to the turf, had difficulty getting up, and then had to be carted off the field. The Buckeyes won 29-22 without him.

Tests came up negative for a concussion or any other serious injury.
