Ari Wasserman of Cleveland.com reports Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is not warming up with the rest of the Buckeyes in preparation for the No. 4 Buckeyes’ matchup with Cal.
Miller suffered a knee injury early into Ohio State’s Week 2 rout of San Diego State. He was a game-time decision per head coach Urban Meyer, who told the Associated Press he would “know more [Friday].” Miller made the trip to Berkeley.
Reserve Kenny Guiton passed for 152 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for another 83 and one last week. Offensive coordinator Tom Herman apparently has supreme confidence in Guiton’s ability to captain the Buckeye offense in Miller’s stead. He said following last week’s win that Guiton would start for at least half of the nation’s teams.
The senior from Houston gets his opportunity to prove his value against a Cal defense that has struggled mightily through two weeks. The Golden Bears gave up 44 points to Northwestern in Week 1, and 30 last week against Portland State.
