Jaamal Berry's status for Saturday's game against Michigan State is uncertain after the Ohio State running back/return man was treated for a health issue following an on-campus incident Wednesday morning.

The Ohio State student newspaper, The Lantern, reported Thursday that Berry was treated at OSU Medical Center and released after being involved in what university police called an "assault" on another student.

No charges have been filed.

From The Lantern report:
At about 10:25 a.m., two males were witnessed "wrestling on the ground" in the South Oval, according to the police report. The primary witness is a university employee who declined to comment, but said in the police report that Berry was muttering things such as "I don't know what is going on around me." The report said Berry "appeared confused and disoriented and was unable to tell me his name."

Ohio State team spokesman Jerry Emig said in a statement: "Medical professionals ran a battery of tests on [Berry]. So far, no medical issue has been identified but the evaluation is continuing. No legal issues are involved."

It's an unusual situation, and we'll see if anything more comes out.

Berry has appeared in three games this season and leads Ohio State in kick returns (7 returns for 150 yards.)
