Urban Meyer Updates: Freshman Running Back Could Get More Reps Against Maryland With Mike Weber A Little Banged Up

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer met with the media Wednesday to discuss the team's upcoming game at Maryland.

Head coach Urban Meyer addressed the media Wednesday after the practice as the Buckeyes prepare for a two-game road trip.

  • Meyer said it's not much of a challenge to keep Mike Weber out of contact all week at this time of the year. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury for a few weeks now and left during the Nebraska game because of it. 
  • He said K.J. Hill is "coming up the ranks" in the receiver room. 
  • Meyer told Mike Weber before this season to try to be like Ezekiel Elliott. "Go do what that position is supposed to do."
  • Antonio Williams is dealing with shoulder soreness and Meyer said that DeMario McCall could get more reps at running back with Weber banged up. 
  • Meyer on Dwayne Haskins: He said he's coming along well.  
  • He said likes that Curtis Samuel wants the ball. 
  • Meyer said he's not having the playoff conversation with his team at this time of the season. "Not yet."
