Ohio State coach Urban Meyer shared some comments following Tuesday’s spring practice session at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Check out those comments in the video here.
Meyer commented on a minor dust-up in practice with QB Braxton Miller.
“I like quarterbacks who want to go out and get in a streetfight,” Meyer said. “That’s probably not the right time to do it. But he’s a competitor … I didn’t really see what happened. Braxton is a competitor. That’s been than the opposite of laying on the ground and curling up and asking, ‘Why did he hit me?’ ”
Meyer said that junior OL Antonio Underwood has been lost due to a torn ACL.
“It’s a shame,” Meyer said. “For the first time in his career, he was making a real push. He was fighting his way into the rotation. We just found out recently and he was having a good spring.”
Meyer said the competition at right tackle is primarily between Taylor Decker and Chase Farris with Pat Elflein also pushing for time. If Elflein would win some time at an interior position, perhaps somebody else would play tackle.
Regarding Carter, Meyer said he is on a 340-pound weight limit. He said he can’t play above that weight because it would not be safe.
