Braxton Miller goes down early for Ohio State

Ohio State’s season might be hanging in the balance after star quarterback Braxton Miller went down with an injury early in the first quarter of its game against San Diego State.

Miller was hurt after taking a keeper for a first down on fourth and 1 from the Aztecs 12-yard line.  A seemingly not-so-vicious hit nonetheless caused him to lose his helmet and he stayed down on the ground for a while, grimacing in pain and holding his head. Ohio State trainers came out and started examining his left knee.

The junior went to the sideline and appeared to be in considerable discomfort before being taken to the locker room on a cart.

Senior Kenny Guiton entered the game in relief of Miller after Ohio State took a 7-0 lead following a seven-yard touchdown run by freshman Dontre Wilson.

We’ve seen these scares from Miller before. He missed parts of games last season due to various scrapes and bruises. But if this injury is serious it could make all the talk of Ohio State being a national title contender just that — talk. There may be no player in the country who is more important to his team.

We’ll keep you updated on Miller’s status as we get more information.

    OSU should have never been talked about as a National Championship contender anyways,they don’t play anybody good,they struggled with Buffalo,and they are the most overrated team in the country. Enjoy the poinsettia bowl…losers!

    I hope Braxton is okay. I know many good Buckeye fans who are holding their breath on this. I wish Braxton well.

    I hope all colleges and universities would adopt the new helmet latch which does not allow the strap/latch to disconnect, even if hit hard, but also more importantly, implement new shock absorbing cushions to replace the old technology presently being used.

    tOSU is a great research university, and perhaps they may help with the implementation of this new technology.

    Be well, Braxton, be well.

    35-0 at halftime. Somehow I don’t think the Buckeyes are too worried.

    I know OSU didn’t play great against Buffalo, but after they went up by double digits, did they ever fall under a two score lead over buffalo? Anyway…

    @theraider- Doesn’t matter that they never went under a double digit lead,they played a crappy Buffalo team,and were favored by 35.
