Braxton Miller ‘symptom-free,’ to be released from hospital

Braxton Miller AP

Apparently, Buckeye Nation can exhale a huge sigh of relief.

All-Everything quarterback Braxton Miller was injured late in the third quarter of No. 7 Ohio State’s 29-22 overtime win over Purdue and, after being carted off the field and into the locker room, was taken via ambulance to a local hospital for further treatment.

In updating Miller’s condition, OSU officials said that the player’s head, neck and shoulders were all checked out and he has been given a clean bill of health. ┬áThe school stated that Miller is “symptom-free of all ailments and is doing fine.”

The initial fear was that Miller suffered a concussion.

The release updating Miller’s health went on to state that “[h]e is in the process of being released from the hospital.”

There was no update on Miller’s availability for next Saturday’s road game against Penn State, although the initial update sounds extremely positive.

    Seems odd that he is fine after how bad he was. But good new for the young man.

    He’s talented, but gets hurt easily and fumbles alot. The way he was “acting” you would have thought he was playing in Brian’s Song.

    Scary hit and moments.

    NEVER want to see that on any team.

    Hope you’re OK Brax.

    Go BLUE!

    That is fantastic news!!! I really thought he was going to have some serious head injury after watching how completely f@#$ed up he looked. Just awesome news that he is doing well considering how bad it looked.

    I say they should sit him out this week

    @jeffrey – I think you’re right! After watching how out of it he was – I don’t think there is any point in putting him back out on the field any time soon!

    I agree because the back up QB played better .

    I would keep him out of the game as he will get rocked by Penn State. Watch the Iowa game they killed Vandenberg.

    OSU is better but the game will be under the lights at PSU, not home.
