The Buckeyes' quarterback is cleared to leave hospital after passing concussion tests, according to Ohio State.

Ohio State has announced quarterback Braxton Miller will leave the hospital after passing all concussion tests and having his shoulders, neck and head examined for injuries.

Miller was carted off the field and later taken to the hospital in an ambulance after hitting his head against the turf in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win by the Buckeyes over the Purdue Boilermakers.

Miller was 9-for-20 with 113 yards and an interception in the game, along with 47 yards rushing on 12 attempts. Ohio State was trailing 22-14 when he left the game. Kenny Guiton came in and rallied Ohio State to a win. Guiton completed 6-for-11 passes for 77 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Guiton threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Chris Fields with 12 seconds remaining in the game and the Buckeyes converted the 2-point conversion to send the game to overtime. They won in overtime on a touchdown run by Carlos Hyde.

There is no report at this time on whether Miller's injury will cause him to miss any games.
