Ohio State vs. Penn State: Braxton Miller expected to start

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to start this weekend against Penn State, despite being taken to the hospital after a hit in the Buckeyes' last game.

Despite leaving the Ohio State Buckeyes' game on Saturday with an injury, quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to be the starter when the Buckeyes visit Happy Valley this weekend to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Miller was injured on a 37-yard run when he was dragged down by Purdue's Josh Johnson. Miller had to leave the game and was carted from the sidelines to the locker room before eventually being taken to the hospital in an ambulance. After being examined there, Miller was released on Saturday night and cleared of any head, shoulder or neck injuries.

Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton took over for Miller and led the Buckeyes to a 29-22 win over Purdue.

The sophomore quarterback, Miller, has thrived in Urban Meyer's offense, passing for 1,384 yards and 11 touchdowns and running for 959 yards and 10 touchdowns before the injury.

Ohio State and Penn State will face off this Saturday, Oct. 27, at 5:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
