The charge of operating a vehicle while he was weakened against Ohio State backup quarterback Jack Miller was dropped during his trial at Franklin County Municipal Court Thursday morning.
Miller pleaded guilty to a felony traffic ticket charge for reckless driving and was sentenced to pay a $ 150 fine.
Ryan Day said Miller could be back with the team as soon as Thursday afternoon.
“We will take a really good look at it today and just get the final details on it, but it looks like we will reinstate him on the team this afternoon,” Day said.
Miller had been suspended from the Ohio State football team since Nov. 5, when he was arrested for OVI and for driving in marked lanes. The charge of driving on marked lanes was also dropped on Thursday morning.
Prior to his suspension, Miller was Ohio State’s third-string quarterback. In four games this season, Miller has completed seven out of 14 passing attempts in 101 yards without touchdowns or interceptions. Quinn Ewers has been Ohio State’s third-string quarterback behind CJ Stroud and Kyle McCord for the past two games, while Miller has been suspended.
A four-star recruit in the 2020 class, Miller is his second season with the Ohio State football program.
