Braxton Miller expected to play in a 'somewhat limited role'

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, who missed last week's victory at California, is expected to play Saturday in what coach Urban Meyer called "a still somewhat limited role."

The Buckeyes play host to FCS opponent Florida A&M in their final non-conference game of the season; the Big Ten schedule opens Sept. 28 against Wisconsin. The second Big Ten game is against Northwestern.

"Our No. 1 objective is to win this game," Meyer told reporters. "No. 2 is make sure everything is ready to go as we enter Big Ten play."

Miller suffered a sprained left knee in the first quarter of Game 2 against San Diego State and was replaced by Kenny Guiton, who started last week against California.

Meyer also said starting sophomore defensive end Adolphus Washington will miss his second game in a row with a strained groin, but he said Washington is "probable" to play against Wisconsin.

True freshman Joey Bosa (6-feet-6, 275 pounds) will start in Washington's place. Bosa's first career start came at Cal, and he was named the Buckeyes' defensive player of the week for his efforts. Bosa was a consensus national top-50 player in the 2013 recruiting class. His dad, John Bosa, played three seasons in the NFL (1987-89) as a defensive end for the Miami Dolphins. His uncle, Eric Kumerow, played linebacker for the Dolphins from 1987-90.
