Ohio State's Hall undergoes surgery

Ohio State running back Jordan Hall is expected to be sidelined for the next 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on his foot, according to a Tweet from ESPN's Joe Schad.

Hall reportedly cut his foot walking in grass and required surgery. The 2012 season begins in nine weeks, so it looks like Hall could miss the season opener at home against Miami (OH) unless he recovers quickly.

The Buckeye playmaker, who is expected to split time with Carlos Hyde as the primary ball-carriers in the team's backfield this fall, is a key part of this offense because of his shiftiness in the open field. He is a very good receiver, and he is expected to fill the Percy Harvin role in head coach Urban Meyer's offense — a multi-dimensional player who excels on screens and some misdirection plays.
