The charge for operating a vehicle while impaired against Ohio State backup quarterback Jack Miller was dropped during his arraignment at the Franklin County Municipal Court on Thursday morning.
Miller pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic ticket charge of reckless operation and was ordered to pay a $150 fine.
Ryan Day said Miller could be back with the team as soon as Thursday afternoon.
“We’re gonna take a real hard look at that today and just get the final details of it, but it looks like here this afternoon we’re going to reinstate him back on the team,” Day said.
Miller had been suspended from the Ohio State football team since Nov. 5, when he was arrested for OVI and for driving in marked lanes. The charge for driving in marked lanes was also dismissed on Thursday morning.
Prior to his suspension, Miller was Ohio State’s third-string quarterback. In four game appearances this season, Miller has completed seven of 14 passing attempts for 101 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Quinn Ewers has been Ohio State’s third-string quarterback behind C.J. Stroud and Kyle McCord for the past two games while Miller has been suspended.
A four-star recruit in the class of 2020, Miller is his second season with the Ohio State football program.
