COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - After being suspended for the opening game, Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby and backup running back Rod Smith return to the lineup this week.
Whether they start and play a lot or are eased back into the depth chart will be determined in the days leading up to the Buckeyes' game Saturday against San Diego State.
Coaches and teammates say both Roby and Smith were active and energetic last week in practice. There is always a transitional phase when players return to the roster, either from injury or other reasons.
The addition of the two players gives the Buckeyes a shot in the arm. In two weeks, they also will regain the suspended Carlos Hyde, last year's leading scorer.
