Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller says he expects to play Saturday versus Penn State.

Miller was taken out of last weekend’s game against Purdue in the third quarter, when he was thrown to the ground after a 37-yard run and experienced dizziness and whiplash. He was taken to the hospital and was released symptom free.

Miller took practice reps on Tuesday and Wednesday but Ohio State will still prepare Kenny Guiton, who played in Miller’s absence last week, to play.

“He is doing good, full-speed practices really yesterday and today,” Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said of Miller. “He has a sore neck, but today (Wednesday) was much better. He lifted and he’s good to go.

The undefeated Buckeyes head to Beaver Stadium Saturday to take on Penn State. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Eastern time.
