Contrary to a report earlier today, Ohio State senior running back Carlos Hyde has not been kicked off the football team. In a release, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said that Hyde has been suspended while a criminal investigation takes place.
Hyde was named as a person of interest by the Columbus Police Department in relation to an assault on a woman over the weekend.
The release from the university also noted that cornerback Bradley Roby, who was arrested over the weekend, will not attend Big Ten media days this week. He is being replaced by safety Christian Bryant.
The school also announced that tight end Marcus Baugh was suspended the first game of the season for an arrest for underage drinking and possessing a fake ID. It was also announced that incoming freshman defensive lineman Tim Gardner was sent home and he will not be a part of the football team this season. He charged Saturday with obstruction of official business.
“I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football program are constantly reminded of and are expected to honor,” Meyer said in the release. “There are also expectations with regard to behavior. I expect our players to conduct themselves responsibly and appropriately and they will be held accountable for their actions.”
