COLUMBUS — Jordan Hall, No. 1 on Ohio State's depth chart at running back, will be out for about 10 weeks after undergoing surgery Friday for a cut on the bottom of his right foot.
Hall, with 817 career rushing yards, is a senior who first-year coach Urban Meyer had singled out as one of the team's top potential playmakers.
Hall was walking in grass outside his residence in Columbus when he cut his foot.
Meyer said Hall will be in a non-weight bearing cast for six weeks before rehabbing the injury for at least a month.
The Buckeyes open fall camp in about five weeks.
Junior Carlos Hyde, sophomore Rod Smith and true freshman Bri'onte Dunn are other options at the position.
