Odds and Ends: Back to the grind

Follow Noon | Givler | Axelrod

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Wednesday's practice had several of visitors watching as the Buckeyes got back at it on the practice fields of the WHAC. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany and members of Big Ten Network were in attendance to check things out as practice was also opened to the local media for a rare chance to take in a full practice and the team did not disappoint with a spirited effort.

Practice was not without its casualties and the season is over for freshman safety Jayme Thompson who suffered a broken leg and will be undergoing surgery on Thursday morning. The prognosis is for a three month recovery which will likely result in a redshirt for the talented player out of Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic high school.

Jeff Heuerman had a great practice and hauled in several passes from Braxton Miller and Kenny Guiton and already looked in mid-season form. Guiton appeared to have good zip on the ball after suffering a broken bone in his throwing hand during the off-season.

Carlos Hyde and Marcus Baugh were both in practice on Wednesday even with suspensions in the future for both players while Bradley Roby was on the field as well but his legal issues have not been settled and no punishment has been announced yet by Ohio State until things get sorted out.

And the hype around Dontre Wilson seems to be well warranted as he looked good catching passes, running the ball in drills and returning kickoffs with fellow freshmen James Clark and Jalin Marshall. Wilson is hoping to be the spark that the offense may have been lacking at times last season but it is still very early to put a lot of pressure on a true freshman who is only four practices into his college career.
