Braxton Miller cleared after hospital visit
By Adam Rittenberg
Hear that huge sigh of relief? It's coming from the state of Ohio.
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is fine after leaving Saturday's game against Purdue in an ambulance. The team says Miller was taken to a local hospital because of concerns of a possible concussion. He had his head, neck and shoulders examined and was cleared by the medical staff. According to Ohio State, Miller is "symptom free of all ailments, and he is doing fine." He's in the process of being released from the hospital.
Given how serious things looked when Miller left the field -- and the stadium -- this is extremely good news for Ohio State. The Buckeyes rallied to beat Purdue 29-22 in overtime behind backup quarterback Kenny Guiton.
Ohio State returns to the field next Saturday at Penn State.
