On a day where Ohio State lost its most valuable player in senior quarterback Braxton Miller, the Buckeyes got a potential starter fully healthy again.
According to Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch, sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott has been fully cleared to practice after undergoing wrist surgery two Saturdays ago.

Ezekiel, who rushed for 262 yards and two touchdowns last season, is projected to start for coach Urban Meyer's squad when it opens the season against Navy Aug. 30.
