COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Quarterback Braxton Miller took a shot to the ribs for the second time in a week but Ohio State's Heisman Trophy candidate finished practice Tuesday and Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said the junior was fine.
The Big Ten's player of the year in 2012 was hit on an option pitch by defensive end Noah Spence even though Miller was wearing a black (for no contact) jersey.
Miller stayed down for several minutes. As backup Kenny Guiton replaced him, Miller confronted some defensive players on the sideline before being restrained by teammates.
Miller was held out of three series before returning to practice in preparation for the spring game on April 13.
It will be held at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium because of concrete work being done to Ohio Stadium.
