There's good news for Ohio State Buckeye fans as quarterback Braxton Miller passed all of his concussion tests and an examination of his shoulders, neck and head reportedly turn up no injuries. Miller was slammed to the turf in the fourth quarter of Ohio State's comeback win over the Purdue Boilermakers yesterday. He was carted off the field after a few minutes. Back-up signal caller Kenny Guiton came into the game with the Buckeyes trailing 22-14 and led them to a 29-22 overtime win.
Miller's status for the ninth-ranked Buckeyes' visit to State College to face the Penn State Nittany Lions this Saturday is unknown at this point.
The news is much worse for Cincinnati Bearcat fans. Senior defensive end Walter Stewart is out indefinitely with an undisclosed upper body injury. Stewart was reportedly injured during the game against Fordham a week ago but played through the injury, which was discovered this week. Miller's pass rushing ability will be sorely missed as the Bearcats head to Louisville on Friday to face the Cardinals in a key Big East Conference matchup. Stewart leads the team with five sacks and seven tackles for a loss.
