Football: Ohio State’s Braxton Miller sprains knee, but expected to make the trip to California

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, who sprained his left knee and left Saturday’s game against San Diego State, is expected to make the tip with the Buckeyes to face Cal next week.

“I think there’s a chance he’ll be ready next week,” Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said.

Miller, the Buckeyes’ Heisman Trophy candidate, was injured on a fourth-down play on the team’s first drive of the afternoon. He was taken by cart from the sidelines to the training room, then returned to the sideline in the second quarter, wearing a brace.

Backup Kenny Guiton finished the game for OSU, completing 19 of 28 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns in the 42-7 win. He also ran nine times for 83 yards, including a 44-yard TD.

Starting defensive end Adolphus Washington, who injured his groin, is listed as day-to-day, according to Meyer.

    Sigh. It doesn’t matter who plays for OSU. We almost lost to a no name QB from an FCS school. Our D is going to make their highlight reel.

    I couldn’t believe how the refs have you guys that game yesterday. What a fix. PSU had 2 tds called back.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    OSU – 45
    Cal state – 13

    Oregon State may have lost to a FCS team but at least that team had a great QB. You would have lost if it weren’t for the refs bailing you out and that team didn’t have a very good QB.

    You guys laid the stinker of the year for PAC 12 teams.

    The Pac-12 generally had a good weekend – no losses to out of conference. Yes, we didn’t look good, but we didn’t lose, and Goff, Khalfani, and the WRs are showing the promise. Oregon State had a decent bounce back win, Colorado didn’t fold like it would have last year, and everyone else took care of business. Thank god Washington State didn’t blow an easy game at U$C. That would have been bad for the Pac-12.

    Gee — look who doesn’t want to talk about SC football anymore

    Only 7 points at home against Wash St?


  • GOGO Bear

    Hahahahaha. 10 – 7 against Washington STate?


  • Will

    You’re right, Eric. Mike Leach’s job would have been on the line with a loss there.

  • covinared

    What a poorly played game by wsu. They are as bad as they were last year.

    Instead of stalking me I would recommend that you keep the cadre of Social Welfare, Sociology, ethnic Studies mercenaries academically eligible.

    You failed miserably over the past few years.


  • ScottyBear

    If you LOL in the shame of your dark lonely basement and no one is there to hear it, is it really a LOL?? Pathetic.

  • BlueNGold

    Moron continues to stalk Cal fans. Its the only life it has. You must have no pride or self esteem, moron.

  • Larry

    U$C took a shit all over themselves in their own house! U$C and Lame Kiffin are a joke! Anybody still left on that bandwagon is really stupied! HAHAHAHA !!!!

  • Larry

    “stupid” damn typos

  • BlueNGold

    I wonder if moron is going to keep referring to the sleazy cheaters as “we” and “our”? So far it seems to be distancing itself from the sinking ship of south central. But I would not be surprised if moron jumps back on the Lame Kiffin Koolaid bandwagon at the first hint of some good news for Tommy’s rubber band. LOL!!!
