COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells will not play when the third-ranked Buckeyes
take on Ohio on Saturday.
Wells injured his right foot in last weekend's 43-0 victory over Youngstown State. He has not practiced with the team this week and
has spent much of the time wearing a protective boot.
Tressel told reporters Thursday that while he feels good about Wells' progress, there wasn't enough progress for Wells to practice with the team through Wednesday.
Tressel says it's too early to speculate on whether Wells would be available for the game on Sept. 13 at No. 1 Southern California.
