Ohio State’s No. 1 RB has foot surgery, out 10 weeks

Jordan Hall, Ramon Buchanan AP

Injuries are always setbacks, but off-the-field, avoidable ones have to hurt a little more.

Case in point: Ohio State running back Jordan Hall, who received a cut on the bottom of his right foot from stepping on a piece of glass while walking through grass outside his residence in Columbus.

Hall had successful surgery on Friday.

Surgery went great doc said,” Hall tweeted Saturday morning.

Recovering from the injury will take around 10 weeks, coach Urban Meyer said via the Associated Press. Hall will be in a non-weight bearing cast for six weeks before beginning another four weeks or so of rehab. Ohio State’s fall camp starts in about five weeks and the Buckeyes season-opening game against Miami (OH) is on Sept. 1.

In theory, Hall’s recovery could push his 2012 debut to around mid-September, perhaps for the Sept. 15 game against Cal.

Hall was Ohio State’s No. 1 back in the team’s post-spring depth chart. Junior Carlos Hyde and sophomore Rod Smith should see more playing time early on given Hall’s injury.

    Given the Buckeyes’ September schedule, I doubt anyone is terribly worried,

    Yeesh – never good news to hear a kid getting hurt but at least it happened now opposed to closer to the season opener. Get well Jordan – you’re going to have a great Senior season!!!

    Wonder what really happened. Glass is a common problem in Columbus, brown glass, green glass, stuff is not good for you sometimes…

    That picture reminds me that Ohio St lost to Miami 24-6 last year. 24-6! And they are supposed to be good this year? LOL

    Miami beat OSU with half of its team suspended… Congratulations! Too bad most of the other teams Miami played didn’t have half of their team suspended… they SUCKED!!!

    A bit more humility would be advised “Canetic.” At least tOSU’s issues were limited to a handful of imdividuals and not institutional and cultural based like in the issues down there in northern Cuba/Overtown University.

    canetic – you still mad bro? It was 10 years ago – you should probably move on…

    Canetic- not to mention Braxton miller wasn’t even playing in that game

    Canetic is too dumb to understand that he is implying that his own team sucks.

    LOL. 24-6. And yes Miami was terrible last year. And will be terrible again this year. But not the year after that. Hopefully!

    24-6. Never forget.

    Already getting ready to use all the excuses….signed HOOOOKE A MANIA

    Your that proud of a 24-6 non conference win against an offense full of backups? Maybe that’s why nobody likes them….never forget that heart breaking loss in the game that actually counted…..

    What bout the year before where Ohio state beat Miami. Our DT Cam Heyward had that big 80 yard pick. Besides who really cares bout Miami we jus wanted to hurry and face Wisconsin to ruin there season and maybe a potential BCS appearance. (which we did)
