Ohio State's Braxton Miller Was Not Suspended Last Week, Says Luke Fickell

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller did not play in last week's win over Toledo, but first-year head coach Luke Fickell stressed that the freshman was not suspended, Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Miller is listed on the depth chart as a co-starter along with fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman, who completed 16-of-30 pass attempts for 189 yards and one touchdown in the 27-22 win.

Fickell said that Miller was "dinged up" during the week and was unable to practice every day.

Three Buckeyes -- running back Jordan Hall, cornerback Travis Howard and safety Corey Brown -- were suspended for two games at the start of the season for accepting $200 in cash from Robert "Bobby" DiGeronimo, a university booster, during a February 19 charity event earlier this year. The players received the cash in envelopes from former teammate Terrelle Pryor, and all three have been reinstated for this week's game against the Miami Hurricanes.

There were reports that Miller attended the same charity event that resulted in the suspensions, but Rabinowitz hears that isn't the case.
