COLUMBUS Ohio State coach Jim Tressel says he ll decide later this week whether injured tailback Chris Beanie Wells will play Saturday against Ohio.
The Heisman Trophy prospect injured his right foot in a 43-0 victory over Youngstown State. X-rays have shown no broken bones.
Tressel said Tuesday that team trainers originally listed Wells as doubtful for the Buckeyes next game.
But Tressel saw him Tuesday morning in the training room and said that Wells said he felt great.
Tressel declined to divulge the nature or severity of the injury. He said he ll see how Wells feels later in the week and consult with medical personnel about the tailback s availability.
The No. 3-ranked Buckeyes play top-ranked Southern California on Sept. 13.
