Braxton Miller and C.J. Barnett are facing some injury issues this week ahead of Ohio State's game against Nebraska

The Ohio St. Buckeyes took some hard hits in a physical game vs. Michigan State last weekend, but quarterback Braxton Miller will be ready to play when the Buckeyes welcome the Nebraska Cornhuskers to Columbus on Saturday. Miller's leg was sore this week after it locked up against the Spartans, but there doesn't seem to be any major issues regarding his health.

"It’s the Big Ten, you know you’re going to take big hits," Miller said after practice. "But I’m good now. The body’s good."

Safety C.J. Barnett's status is still uncertain. Barnett has missed the past two games with an ankle injury, and head coach Urban Meyer says Barnett is doing better but still may not be ready.

"I’d put him maybe — is there a maybe category?" Meyer said. "He’s doing a lot better, but he’s still limping around."

Orhian Johnson has started the past two games in Barnett's place, and would get another start if Barnett's not ready to go.
