Florida State announced Monday that running back Chris Thompson is out for the rest of the season with an injured left knee.

The injury occurred after he made a 32-yard reception in the second quarter of the Seminoles' 33-20 win over Miami on Saturday.

Thompson had six rushes for 47 yards. For the season, he has a team-high 687 rushing yards and 248 receiving.

Thompson missed a significant portion of last year with a serious back injury.

---Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, a Heisman Trophy candidate, has been cleared to practice this week after leaving Saturday's game against Purdue and taken to an on-campus hospital. The Buckeyes play Penn State on Saturday.

ESPN.com reported that Miller passed all medical examinations for a concussion.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said Miller has a sore neck. He was driven hard to the ground after a long running play.

--Maryland has lost a second quarterback for the season after an MRI on Monday revealed that freshman Perry Hills suffered a torn anterior-cruciate ligament in Saturday's loss to North Carolina State.

Hills had replaced C.J. Brown, who sustained a torn ACL in August.

The Terps' new quarterback will be either Caleb Rowe or Devin Burns, who was a wide receiver to start the year.
