Ohio State RB Wells out for Saturday

COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said tailback Chris Wells will not play when the third-ranked Buckeyes take on Ohio on Saturday.

Wells injured his right foot in last weekend's 43-0 victory over Youngstown State. He has not practiced with the team this week and has spent much of the time wearing a protective boot.

Tressel told reporters Thursday that while he feels good about Wells' progress, there wasn't enough progress for Wells to practice with the team through Wednesday.

Tressel says it's too early to speculate on whether Wells would be available for the game on Sept. 13 at No. 1 USC. is your source for: College Football | Football Recruiting | College Basketball | Basketball Recruiting | College Baseball | High School | College Merchandise
