Jordan Hall injury: Buckeyes RB may miss rest of 2012 season

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

Buckeyes running back Jordan Hall may miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. It's possible that he could receive a medical redshirt and return to the team in 2013.

Ohio State Buckeyes running back Jordan Hall may miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. The senior partially tore his PCL against Michigan State, and hasn't played since. As he's only played in three games this season, Hall could potentially receive a medical redshirt for the year and be eligible to return in 2013. Hall apparently "re-dinged" his knee in practice, according to head coach Urban Meyer, and is no longer practicing with the team.

Hall has 40 carries for 218 yards and a touchdown in his three games of action against California, UAB, and Michigan State. He was expected to be one of Ohio State's primary offensive weapons, but things haven't worked out the way many had planned. Last summer, Hall tore a tendon in his foot after stepping on a piece of glass, which caused him to miss fall camp and the Buckeyes' first two games last season.

Ohio State faces the Penn State Nittany Lions in Happy Valley on Saturday, in what may be the regular season game of the year in the Big Ten.
