Ohio State’s hopes for an undefeated season are still alive after word came out Monday that quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to practice by Tuesday and start Saturday despite a scary injury last week.
Miller was taken to the OSU Medical Center by ambulance during the Purdue game after getting hog-tied on a tackle. A concussion was feared, but coach Urban Meyer on Monday said it was more of a whiplash-type jerking to the neck.
Though painful, the injury isn’t expected to cause Miller to miss any time. Ohio State (8-0, 4-0) plays at Penn State (5-2, 3-0) on Saturday. The two teams aren’t eligible for the Big Ten title game, but can still win the Leaders Division trophy.
