According to a report from ESPN, Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller will not play against Florida A&M. Miller sat out last week’s win over California because of a sprained knee ligament.

ESPN also says that Braxton Miller could’ve played today if need be, but he made a joint decision with head coach Urban Meyer to sit out and get an extra game of rest. Coming off an undefeated season, the Buckeyes aren’t worried about their game with Florida A&M. The spread for the game is a whooping 49 points.
Miller was a Heisman hopeful coming into the season and missing two games could hurt his chances.
As reported in the tweet above, it is likely that Kenny Guiton will start in his place. Last week against Cal he passed for 276 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 92 yards.
Next week Ohio State plays Wisconsin in their Big Ten opener, you can expect Miller to be ready for that game.
