By: BUCKEYES for LIFE
Another hit came for the Buckeyes this week. Running Back Jordan Hall will miss ten weeks, including the first couple games, due to a torn tendon. The senior had surgery on his right foot, which was cut by an unknown object as he walked out of his house bare foot. Last season, Hall rushed for 408 total yards and two touchdowns. Head coach Urban Meyer called Hall a “warrior” and hopes to get him back as soon as possible. Now Meyer is scrambling to replace Hall and get a new starter ready for the upcoming season. The first game for the Buckeyes comes against another in-state foe: the Miami of Ohio Red Hawks. Last year the University of Toledo came in the Shoe and almost beat the Buckeyes – a feat no Ohio team had done since Oberlin College in the 1921 season. With Hall absent, Meyer will look at Junior Carlos Hyde who rushed for 566 yards and six touchdowns and sophomore Rod Smith.
