Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has left the third-ranked Buckeyes’ game against San Diego State after being pinned between tacklers.
Miller, a junior tabbed as one of the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy, carried on fourth-and-1 at the Aztecs 12 early in the game. He cut inside left end and was hit by defensive back King Holder and middle linebacker Jake Fely, Miller’s helmet popping off as he fell.
He lay on the field on his back for a moment, holding his head. He then was helped to his feet and walked under his own power to the sideline before going to the locker room on a cart.
With Kenny Guiton taking his place, the Buckeyes scored on the next play for a 7-0 lead.
