COLUMBUS: Ohio State says running back Jordan Hall has been granted a medical redshirt after missing most of the 2012 season due to foot and knee injuries.
Hall carried the ball in just three games last season as a senior, totaling 40 attempts for 218 yards and a touchdown. He missed the start of the season after cutting his foot in the summer and the end after partially tearing a knee ligament.
Ohio State also announced that its first spring football practice will be March 5, the second on March 7 and, after spring break, the third would be March 19. The annual spring game is being played April 13 at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium, due to construction at Ohio Stadium.
