Braxton Miller Goes Down After Losing Helmet on Hit vs. SDSU
Ohio State quarterback and Heisman hopeful Braxton Miller suffered an injury in the early goings of the Buckeye's contest with San Diego State.
Miller took a wicked hit from an Aztecs defender that resulted in his helmet popping off as documented by CBS' Sports Bruce Feldman.
The Ohio State offense continued to roll after Miller left the field, as running back Dontre Wilson took the rock into the endzone from seven yards out to give Urban Meyer's team the lead.
Unfortunately, the good news ends there as Feldman echoed the report from the broadcast citing an "MCL issue" for Miller with the coaching staff taking him off the field on on a cart.
The initial thought was the training staff would slap a brace on the hurt leg and get Miller back into the game. Miller returned to the sidelines with a brace on the leg, but as CBS Sports reports, Urban Meyer decided with his team up 21-0 over the Aztecs in the second quarter that Miller's day was over unless the team needed him:

Long-term health took a precedence over statistics here, and Meyer made the right call.
