LOS ANGELES Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said last night that injured running back Chris Beanie Wells will not play tonight against No. 1 USC.
He would cut his foot off for these guys, but I just don t think as I listen to the medical people it would be the right thing to do, Tressel said. We won t have Beanie tomorrow.
Tressel said the Buckeyes will use Dan Herron, Brandon Saine and Maurice Wells in place of Beanie.
As I listened to the doctors and as I think about the situation, I think the decision had to be made, Tressel said.
