Griffin's career likely over

Follow Noon | Givler | Axelrod

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State cornerback Adam Griffin's career may have come to an unexpected end on Thursday, when the redshirt junior underwent shoulder surgery. An OSU spokesperson said that Griffin "in all likelihood, won't be able to be able to continue playing football" as a result of his injury.

The son of two-time Heisman Trophy winner and former Buckeyes running back Archie Griffin, Adam spent the majority of his college career as a backup cornerback and special teams player. The Columbus, Ohio native played in all 12 of Ohio State's games in 2012, tallying 13 tackles and breaking up a pass attempt on a fake punt in the Buckeyes' victory over Penn State.

Last winter, Griffin was a recipient of OSU's Iron Buckeye Award, which is presented to 
"the student-athlete(s) who best exemplified unquestionable physical training dedication, determination, discipline, toughness and leadership."Despite spending the spring competing with Tyvis Powell for Ohio State's nickelback spot, the majority of Griffin's playing time would have likely again come on special teams this fall.
