Braxton Miller injury: Buckeyes QB sore but ready for Penn State

The Ohio State Buckeyes will likely have quarterback Braxton Miller on Saturday against Penn State.

On Saturday, the Ohio State Buckeyes will take on Penn State, and it looks like they'll have their star quarterback in Braxton Miller. Against Purdue, Miller went down with an injury that looked much more serious than it actually was, and fans were fearing the worst. Now, Miller looks ready to go after practicing in full on Tuesday and Wednesday, and head coach Urban Meyer had a quote from the Cleveland Plain Dealer on him:

"He was full speed in practice yesterday and today. He has a sore neck, but today, it's much better. He's good to go."

Meyer said on Monday that his starting quarterback looked ready to go, but the team hadn't yet practiced since their 29-22 overtime win over Purdue, and given how serious the injury looked, folks were questioning his statements. But now that Miller has practiced twice, and at full speed, Buckeyes fans can likely breathe a sigh of relief.

Miller still has a sore neck, and he'll be watched carefully in the game, but all signs point to Ohio State being plenty ready to take on Penn State.
