Charge against Ohio State Buckeyes CB Bradley Roby dismissed

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has already suspended CB Bradley Roby for the season opener against Buffalo.

However, the charge that led to the discipline for the star corner was conditionally dismissed Wednesday, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Roby was charged with misdemeanor battery after a fight at a Bloomington, Ind., bar in July -- Roby was alleged to have hit a security guard in the chest. Video evidence of the bar incident apparently showed Roby had only lunged at the security guard, and the charge against him was reduced to disorderly conduct last week. That charge will be dismissed if Roby successfully completes a diversion program, and to complete the program he must avoid legal trouble until Aug. 16, 2014.

The junior is considered one of the top players in college football, and is arguably the nation's top collegiate corner.

Sophomore Armani Reeves will start in place of Roby in the season opener.
