Shoulder issues likely end OSU playing career of Archie Griffin’s son

Adam Griffin

Two members of the Ohio State football program have likely seen their playing careers ended due to injury, including one with a rather famous Scarlet & Gray father.

The Buckeyes announced that fifth-year senior Jamie Wood fourth-year junior Adam Griffin (pictured) have been sidelined due to ongoing and lingering shoulder issues.

This summer camp was Wood’s latest attempt to return from multiple shoulder surgeries.  When healthy, the safety played in 30 games, including four games last season before re-injuring his shoulder. He played in all 13 games in both 2010 and 2011.

With a bachelor’s degree in strategic communications in hand, Wood will now focus on grad school at OSU.

Griffin — the son of the only two-time winner of the Heisman, Archie Griffin — underwent shoulder surgery this morning and, the school wrote, in all likelihood won’t be able to continue playing football.  Griffin played in 12 games last season.

    good luck in your future endeavours Adam Griffin. Texas A&M should have contracted out to Archie Griffin to teach Manziel how to behave and show some humility and integrity.

    Nice that he can fall back on a quality grad school education now that his career is over. Better than having a worthless Coloring degree from UM.

    With his experience at tOSU, he can still do a lot- slapping women, gangbanging, DUI’s, dope smoking, etc…….

    Or he can go to USC and ride around in a white bronco like Allen and OJ ;)

    That tall drink of water pictured is “student”-athlete-entitled son Duron Carter, not short, hard-working Adam Griffin.

    Minor correction.

    Or perhaps it is Corey Brown, from one of about four games in 2010 where he wore #9 instead of his usual #3.

    Either way, not Griffin lol.

    Thanks for the heads up. Hate when the pictures are mislabeled in the database.

    And now the photo is Griffin. Way to be flexible.

    Totally classless post garylee (and I’m a UM fan). Good luck to Mr. Griffin and Mr. Wood. I wish you well in your future endeavors.
