Ohio State QB Jones Out Of Hospital Following Severe Headache

Quarterback Cardale Jones

Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones is out of the hospital after being evaluated for a severe headache Wednesday night. 

University officials say he was released from the OSU Wexner Medical Center following an examination and "he is doing fine today."

Jones is competing with J.T. Barrett to be the top-ranked Buckeyes' starter when they open the season Monday night at Virginia Tech.

Jones took over as Ohio State's starter last year after J.T. Barrett broke his ankle in the regular-season finale against Michigan. Jones helped the Buckeyes beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game and Alabama and Oregon in the College Football Playoff to win the national title.

Ohio State spokesperson, Jerry Emig, confirmed that Jones was hospitalized, and was released Wednesday night. 

"Cardale Jones was examined last night at the OSU Wexner Medical Center. He was released from the center following the examination and he is doing fine today," Emig said.
