Ohio State starting running back Jordan Hall will miss 10 weeks of fall practice and possibly the first quarter of the regular season after undergoing surgery on his right foot.

The soon-to-be senior suffered a severe cut while walking on grass outside his residence in Columbus and will be wearing a non-weighted cast for six weeks before starting rehab.

Teammate and projected starting strong safety C.J. Barnett had this to say to Hall via Twitter:

@Jordan_Hall7 thank God. I’m praying that you are ready by Sept. 1. We NEED you.

— CJ Barnett (@See_4our) June 30, 2012


Hall responded:

@See_4our I'm gon go rehab crazy to be wit y'all bra

— Jordan Hall (@Jordan_Hall7) June 30, 2012


Hall recorded 405 rushing yards in 2011 and hauled in 114 yards receiving. He had a total of five touchdowns and was a factor as a return specialist.

Although this could potentially be a huge blow for the Buckeyes' offense, a strong depth chart at the position is still in place. Junior Carlos Hyde, sophomore Rod Smith and true freshman Bri'onte Dunn are all viable replacements for the time being.
